This Cherry was introduced from China in 1908 by Ernest Wilson.
This lovely cherry was introduced from Western China in 1908 by Ernest Wilson and is surely one of the best trees available for bark interest.
Available as single stemmed or multi- stemmed this wonderfully dramatic tree can provide great contrast within a garden or urban environment.
Its many horticultural honours culminated in the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
A fast growing, but small tree of rounded form.
It has really shiny, mahogany-brown bark that just keeps on getting better and more sensational with age which makes it worth growing for this reason alone.
It has narrow, willow-like leaves and small, white flowers, which are produced in April.
Like most cherries it thrives best on free draining soils.
Mature height: 5-10m
