The Highlights

    • One of the most popular cherry trees!
    • Large, lush double pink flowers in the spring
    • Coppery foliage in the spring turning mid-green in the summer
    • Growing to 4x4m, suitable for even small gardens
    • A hardy tree that will thrive in all but chalky soils
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single-use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better-shaped tree. This can stop the tree from becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

Bare Root
Our trees are supplied as “bare roots” meaning that the roots of the trees are established below the ground but not actively growing (dormant) between November and March. As bare roots are stored without any soil or pot, they would easily settle themselves when in contact with soil in your garden. Don't panic if your tree is not showing any sign of growth above the ground comes April, as its still in the dormant phase.

This tree is supplied in a 9L Eco Pot, which is approx D15 x H30cm. Eco Pots use 70% less plastic then traditional pots and can be recycled easily. A 9L pot allows ample space for good root development and can support a good size tree.

Care Guide

Average Pest/ Disease Resistance

May need protection from caterpillars, leaf-mining moths and bullfinches and be affected by silver leaf, bacterial canker and blossom wilt.

A little watering when new.

When newly planted, the trees would love a little watering at least once a month for the initial couple of months. Afterwards keep moist but well drained.

Full sun

This cherry tree loves full sun exposure or a sheltered location,allowing all the nutrients to create blossom in your garden. When choosing a spot away from strong winds, it will help all the resources to go towards growing the blossom and protection of its display.

Happy in moist and well drained soil but for chalk

Adapts to clay,loam and sandy soil

Prune Annually

Pruning in mid-summer may be required if affected by silver leaf
