Prunus sargentii: Bareroot Sargent's Cherry Trees in Standard Sizes

Prunus sargentii is a medium sized, spreading cherry blossom tree with pink flowers and red-purple young leaves. 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 (safe but inedible) cherries which are loved by birds and squirrels. The bark is a smooth, reddish brown. Although mature trees will take up a bit of space, they only cast light shade.

Quite upright when it is young, it matures into a wide, rounded form, up to 8m tall.

Delivery season: Sargent's 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 8m
  • Soil: Any decently well drained
  • Use: Specimen, avenues, urban
  • Colour: Pink flowers in April
  • RHS Award of Garden Merit
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Prunus sargentii

Suitable for any well drained soil, we recommend planting in full sun.

Did You Know?

Native to Japan and Korea, it quickly became popular after it was introduced in 1908. It is named after Charles Sprague Sargent (1841-1927), who was a Director of the Arnold Arboretum in Massachusetts (it was brought to the USA before the UK).

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.
