Buy Prunus 'Royal Burgundy' Japanese flowering cherry: A compact, purple-leaved plum with pendant clusters of double rose-pink flowers

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In spring, small, pendent clusters of rose pink, double flowers appear amongst the newly emerging foliage. This foliage is initially bronze, but quickly turns to a deep reddish-purple, making a delicious contrast to the flowers. A great tree for smaller gardens, it has a rounded habit with slightly spreading branches and the leaves will colour up nicely in autumn. In winter, after all the leaves have fallen, the peeling copper-red bark will provide further interest.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker.
