Prunus sargentii Standard Trees

Prunus sargentii is a large, spreading cherry blossom tree with pink flowers and red-purple young leaves. A medium sized tree that is quite upright when it is young, Prunus sargentii matures into a 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 (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.

How Standard Trees are Measured:

All our standards are graded by their girth in centimetres - taken 1 metre above ground level. 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. In any variety an 8/10 is taller than a 6/8 but the heights between different varieties can vary hugely. So standard trees are roughly 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall.

Did You Know? 

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. It makes a magnificent contribution to any autumn display.
