Product details

Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis, commonly referred to as Winter Flowering Cherry, blooms during the winter months instead of the spring.

The semi-double white flowers appear intermittently from November through to March. The subtle colouring brings welcome cheer on the darkest of days. The autumn foliage is orange-yellow and appears in autumn before the flowers begin to arrive.

Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis was introduced in 1894 and won the Award of Merit in 1930. It remains a popular little tree for bringing some colour to schemes in the wintertime.

The winter flowering cherry forms a small tree, with a rounded head and like most cherries prefers to be planted on well-drained soil; as such heavy clay or waterlogged soils should be avoided.

This lovely tree can be planted in parks and gardens however can also tolerate planting in streets.

Be sure to select a planting location where the tree is prominent in the wintertime.

Mature height: 3-7m
