“A growing source of excellence”

(Tibetan Cherry)

Prunus serrula is a small, round headed, deciduous tree ideal for small gardens or areas with limited space. It was introduced to this country from West China in the early 20th Century. The attractive polished bark provides winter interest and ensures it makes a stunning specimen plant.

In Spring, single, white flowers appear in clusters amongst the newly emerging foliage and are often followed by small fruit in autumn.

The leaves are dark green and narrow throughout the summer and turn yellow before falling in autumn.

Prunus serrula is available from Deepdale Trees as a standard or multistem plant.
