Pandora is a compact flowering cherry, with a pleasing upright form. It makes a good choice for the smaller garden as a specimen tree, and is also attractive when several are planted together.
The blossom is a delicate light pink and emerges en masse ahead of the leaves, and has a slight and pleasant fragrance.
The leaf colour is one of the points of interest of Pandora. It is essentially a green-bronze colour over the summer, but in early spring the bronze element is more prominent, whilst in autumn the leaves take on strong red and orange tints.
