Often called the Tassel Cherry because of the distinctive shape of its flowers - the anthers hang down below the petals, and the flowers themselves hang on stalks, from the upright branches - creating a unique feathery effect when viewed en masse.

This species grows with a vertical columnar form, making it a good choice for small spaces.
