This pretty tree is fairly new to the Barcham range and has proven an extremely desirable addition to our range. The frilly flowers appear in spring and are double pink; the flowers remain on the tree until the dark wine coloured foliage begins to emerge, providing a wonderful contrast between the two.
It is a truly eye-catching effect. In the autumn time the dark leaves turn a clearer red before falling. Prunus Royal Burgundy is a small tree, which differs to Kanzan in that it is slightly less vigorous.
It forms an upright crown at a young age, gradually broadening to a rounder shape at maturity. It will tolerate most soil conditions, however like most cherries; it prefers a well drained soil.
This stunning dark coloured beauty is a real rival to the very popular Prunus cerasifera Nigra, the widely planted dark foliaged cherry. The dark pink flowers and red-wine coloured foliage gives stunning contrast in the spring and makes a great selection for avenue planting. It is best planted against a light or plain background, as this gives the vivid colour exhibited by this specimen the chance to shine.
Mature height: 3-7m
