A Cherry which is well suited to restricted areas.
This man-made tree has its uses in urban environments where space is limited.
Small white flowers in spring are replaced by a dense canopy of small vivid green leaves that turn a glorious orange / red in the autumn.
A top worked, dwarfing clone which forms a compact and rounded crown.
Budded onto Colt rootstock, Prunus avium is used as the inter-stock, with fructosa Globosa top grafted to form the crown.
The avium inter-stock gives the height, while the Colt rootstock prevents pavement heave.
It requires virtually no maintenance, and is an admirable urban tree.
Mature height: 5-7m
