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 cerasifera Nigra trees:
This Purple Leaved Cherry Plum is an ornamental, small, deciduous tree with rich dark purple foliage and white flowers with a pink tinge in February-April. These ripen into edible red cherry-sized plums in July which are quite sweet but without much flavour. A really easy to grow tree.

History & uses of Prunus cerasifera Nigra:
This variety was bred in 1916 in America. It has won both the RHS Award of Garden Merit and the First Class Certificate for its cut flowers.
