“A growing source of excellence”

(Hybrid Cherry)

Prunus x schmittii is a Chinese hybrid between Prunus avium and Prunus caescens, originally created in 1923. The tree is a fast growing tree, with a narrow vase-shaped crown.

The tree flowers in April and May with small, non-showy pale pink blossom , it also has a bark that is remarkably glossy and brown-ish red with horizontal stripes (lenticels). In the Autumn the leaves turn a pretty yellow-orange colour adding some flare to the tree. The bark helps to maintain interest all year round.

Due to the tree being a hybrid, it is less prone to disease than other Prunus.
