“A growing source of excellence”

(Sargents Cherry)

Prunus sargentii is commonly known as the Sargents cherry. It is native to Japan and was introduced to the United Kingdom at the beginning of the twentieth century.

It is a fabulous small tree with a compact crown. The ovate leaves emerge reddish bronze in colour and contrast beautifully against the abundant single pink flowers. The leaves then turn dark green in summer before unleashing one of the best autumn displays turning fiery orange and red.

This is a relatively fast growing tree which transplants easily and is great for both garden and street plating. Will do best on a free draining soil.
