Prunus hillieri Spire

Spire Cherry is a slender, upright tree, columnar when young but fanning out slightly as it ages. It has small, soft pink single flowers in April with red eyes. The pinkish bronze leaves are unfurling at the same time, so the effect is pink at a distance and, close up, full of charming detail. This would make a good specimen for a smallish garden, bearing in mind it can reach up to 9m - 29ft high, but should not exceed 3m - 10ft in width. There is red and golden autumnal colour too. Prunus hillieri Spire is a match for a Rancho Cherry when it comes to tall, slim flowering cherrries for tight spaces. But if neither is for you then take a look at the remainder of our range of ornamental trees for the garden.  

Please watch our tree planting video for full planting instructions.

How Standard Trees are Measured: All our standards, including our cherry trees, 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.
