Foliage turns bright red in Autumn before falling. Upright, open vase habit.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Cherries prefer deep, fertile and well-drained soil with pH 6.5-6.7. They dislike shallow, sandy or badly drained soils. Acid cherries tolerate some shade and are suitable as fan-trained trees against north-facing walls or fences, or as open centred bush trees. Best planted in full sunlight.

 

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Flowering cherries produce their wonderfully abundant display of flowers in Spring
