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 Shirofugen:
A beautiful, wide spreading tree that is wider than it is tall when mature, the Shirofugen Cherry is the latest flowering cherry, sometimes lasting into June. The large, double, fragrant white flowers open from pink buds and darken into pink again just before they fall. These contrast very well against the rich, copper coloured young leaves.
History & uses of Shirofugen Cherry:
Shirofugen means "white god" in Japanese. It was bred about 500 years ago from a tree called Fugenzo and it was introduced to Britain around the start of the 20th century.
