Prunus dulcis is a lovely small tree which not only produces a vast and lively spring show, but also has the added bonus of producing almond nuts in the autumn time.
Before the bright green foliage emerges on this pretty garden tree, it is festooned with single and double pink flowers which create an interesting and notable effect. This tree exhibits leaves that are three times long as they are wide, are slightly serrated around the edges, turning to yellowy orange in the autumn time. The sweet and tasty nuts are ripened in Autumn time, ready for picking and eating!
Prunus dulcis produces a lovely broadly spreading specimen at maturity, reaching between 5 and 10m in height. Like all cherries, this tree prefers a well drained soil which is reasonably fertile. It is best to avoid planting this specimen in soils where other Prunus species have been to avoid any contamination with infections and diseases.
This small tree is a perfect selection for a small garden which aims to bring functionality as well as beauty. Although this specimen is pollinated by insects, it is worth considering planting with other fruit trees to broaden the variety of fruit in the garden and also to help pollination.
Mature height: 3-7m
