Buy Prunus 'The Bride' ornamental cherry: Larger than average 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
  • Soil: tolerates most soils
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The flowers of this small, rounded tree are exquisite, and create a wonderful display in mid-spring. Larger than many of the other ornamental cherries, they have pure white petals, which surround a contrasting cluster of distinctive red anthers. The dense, twiggy crown of this small tree has been grafted on to the upright stem of the rootstock at a height of 45cm, which will limit the eventual height. Ideal for growing in a container, or will make a fine specimen for a lawn or spring border where it can be underplanted with bulbs. In autumn, the normally green leaves turn rich autumn shades before they drop.

  • 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. Cut back any dead, diseased or crossing branches.
