In Season Out of season
Spire Cherry is a slender, upright tree, columnar when young but fanning out slightly as it ages. It has small, soft pink single flowers in April with red eyes. The pinkish bronze leaves are unfurling at the same time, so the effect is pink at a distance and, close up, full of charming detail.
This would make a good specimen for a smallish garden, bearing in mind it can reach up to 9m - 29ft high, but should not exceed 3m - 10ft in width. There is red and brown autumnal colour too.
Please watch our tree planting video for full planting instructions.
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. Most standards are between 2 - 3.5 metres tall, but this is just an average. We cannot tell you how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
All the accessories you need to plant a large tree, i.e. any Ornamental Standard or Bush or Half-Standard fruit tree.
