How Standard Trees are Measured:
All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
General description of Prunus Tai haku trees:
The Great White Cherry is a good sized tree with a flat canopy and spreading branches. The large, white, scented flowers are up to 6cm across absolutely cover the tree in April, just as the new, coppery coloured leaves are peeking out. Many gardeners consider it to be the best white flowering cherry tree. Young trees are upright and goblet shaped, but old trees will often be wider than they are tall, with a canopy that is both uneven and elegant, like the profile of a rolling mountain. The dark bark is an attractive feature in winter, especially on a snowy day.
History & uses of Prunus Tai haku:
We think that Taihaku is an honorary native tree. It was extinct in Japan and thought to be lost to the world, until Captain Collingwood Ingram found one specimen in Sussex in 1923. Every Taihaku alive in the world today comes from that single plant and it was re-introduced to Japan in 1932. This tree has won the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
