Product Details

This cherry tree has a utilitarian feel to it; its flowers are single and white, appearing in April with a flush of bright green foliage which turns flame red in the autumn time.

Prunus Umineko is a medium to large tree at maturity, producing a crown which is fairly upright when it is young, broadening to an upside down vase shape at maturity.

It is a cross between Prunus incisa and Prunus speciosa and won the Award of Merit in 1928. It is sometimes referred to as Snow Goose and those after this species should be comfortable with planting cherries labelled as Umineko instead. Like most cherries this tree will thrive in all soils providing they free draining.

This super tree is vigorous and robust and will give a reliable performance year on year out. It has a lovely regular shape for a cherry and looks super planted as an avenue.

Mature height: 3-7m
