When the selection Brilliant arose is unclear. Prunus nipponica Kurilensis Brilliant is an attractive early flowering ornamental Cherry. Large pure white single flowers are produced in abundance in early spring before the coarsely toothed leaves which are an attractive rustic brown when young.

Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 8-9 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost. Makes a first class hedging plant. ..
