This Flowering Cherry is a cross between P. sargentii and P. x subhirtella.
This Flowering Cherry is a cross between Prunus sargentii and Prunus x subhirtella and so inherits the best features of both, namely profuse pink flowers in spring as well as a smattering in the winter.
This great clone is well proven, winning the First Class Certificate in 1954, the Award of Merit in 1952 and the updated Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
An outstandingly fine small tree with a rounded and spreading habit, its semi-double pink blossoms are hard to rival.
Tolerant of most soils, including calcareous ones, this is a good choice for streets, parks and gardens.
Mature height: 5-10m
