Product: Prunus serrula

An unusual cherry, Prunus serrula is renowned for its polished, mahogany brown bark which is evident even on young specimens and very smooth to the touch. It has narrow, willow-like, dark green leaves unlike any other cherry and casts only light shade. In spring each year sporadic white flowers appear on the branches.

Prunus serrula is a wonderful garden tree which gives a jaw-dropping winter display!
