  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Flower colour: white

    Ideal for small gardens, this is an attractive, deciduous tree that has a compact crown of dark green leaves that are each divined into fine leaflets, giving them a lacy effect. In spring white flowers provide a good contrast and these are followed in late summer and autumn by long-lasting clusters of peach and white coloured berries, which gently weight the branches down. A tough, little tree that can tolerate a wide range of soils and conditions.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
