Prunus incisa 'Yamadei'

Discovered near Mount Fuji in 1916, this form resembles the species except that it does not have any red in the buds or flowers. Both the calyx and bud are light green.

Unlike the parent too is the fact that the flowers do not open fully but are rather bell-like or campanulate. It forms a magnificent tree to 4m and is very attractive to bees.
