Buy Prunus sargentii Sargent's cherry: A charming cherry tree

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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: tolerates most soils
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Lush bronze-red foliage turns rich red in summer and then brilliant scarlet in early autumn. Clouds of pale pink blooms cover the branches in mid-spring followed by glossy crimson fruit. This medium-sized, spreading tree is one of the best cherries for autumnal colour, reliably changing colour before most other trees.

  • Garden care: Plant Sargent's cherry as soon as conditions allow (avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil). Choose a sheltered spot to protect emerging blossom. Incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake and support firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker. Cut back any dead, diseased or crossing branches.
