This stunning cherry has stunning mahogany coloured shiny bark which peels with age to reveal further polished bark, it is a truly a tree which gets better with age. The leaves are small and willow like and it produces small white flowers that are produced in April, sadly they are not as impressive as the stem of this tree; it is this factor alone which drives the planting of the Tibetan Cherry.
For this reason, this spectacular tree is also grown and supplied as a coppiced multi-stem; to make the most of the stunning, peeling bark.
Like many cherries, this vigorous grower will thrive in most soil types and prefers a well drained soil. This small tree is a wonderful addition to a planting scheme, bring colour in the gloomy winter months.
It is a great selection for planting in contrast with other coloured bark, for example Betula utilis Jacquemontii, encouraging the bright colours to glow in the doldrums of winter. It can be planted as an individual specimen or is equally effective as an avenue and can be combined with careful under-planting once the trees are established to exaggerate the colour of the stems.
Mature height: 3-7m
