Prunus sargentii Rancho: Bareroot Rancho Cherry Trees in Standard Sizes

Probably the most upright of the flowering cherries, Prunus sargentii Rancho is a narrow form of the beautiful Prunus sargentii cherry tree which has pink blossom and brilliant autumn colour.
It has profuse, dark pink flowers that appear on bare wood in the spring, while its copper-purple young leaves are still very small. The leaves have serrated edges and turn dark glossy green in the summer. In autumn, they put on an awesome display of red and dark yellow. The flowers can sometimes be followed by small, bitter cherries which are taken by birds and squirrels. Rancho has rather shiny, smooth reddish brown bark that shows well when the tree is dormant.
Young trees are extremely narrow, and although they will begin to spread out a bit more when they are mature, they never lose their erect form and old trees (50 years+) shouldn't develop a canopy more than about 3-4 metres wide, perfect for tight spaces. They can reach a height of about 10 metres.

Delivery season: Rancho cherry trees are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small trees are cheaper, easier to handle and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our bareroot trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Features:

  • Height: To 10m by 4m
  • Soil: Any decently well drained
  • Use: Specimen, small garden, avenue, urban, large containers
  • Colour: Pink flowers in April
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Rancho Cherry Trees

Suitable for any well drained soil, we recommend planting in full sun. It is well suited to large containers designed for trees.

Did You Know?

The species is native to Japan and China, and this variety was introduced to Britain from America in 1950.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
