“A growing source of excellence”

(Manchurian Cherry)

A strong growing decorative ornamental cherry tree, which gives year round interest. The Prunus maackii Amber Beauty’s crowning glory is its shiny shimmering golden brown to copper yellow smoothly polished bark, peeling off the stem in horizontal rolled strips.

The spring blossom is white, appearing in round racemes, almost ball shaped with stamen.

Following the blossom is the foliage of rich green deciduous leaves which have a serrated edge to them, providing dappled shade often turning to beautiful shades of red and gold in the autumn following a hot summer.

Small black fruits of around 0.5cm appear in Autumn.
