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 sargentii cherry trees:
A medium sized tree that is quite upright when it is young, Prunus sargentii matures into wide rounded form. It has delicate, small pink flowers that appear at the same time as the young leaves, which are a rich purple-red colour. The leaves are magnificent in autumn, looking like cooling lava for about a week and then going out in a fireball of crimson. The blossom is sometimes followed by black, inedible cherries which are eaten by birds and squirrels. The bark is a smooth, reddish brown.
History & uses of Prunus sargentii
This tree is native to Japan and Korea. It became very popular in the late 1800's and it was named after Charles Sprague Sargent, who was a Director of the Arnold Arboretum in Massachusetts.
