Prunus Sargentii

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.

General description of Prunus sargentii cherry trees:History & uses of Prunus sargentii: 

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.

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.
