Prunus hillieri Spire Standard Trees

Spire Cherry is a slender, upright ornamental flowering cherry, columnar when young but fanning out slightly as it ages. It has small, very pale pink single flowers in April with red centres. 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. Prunus Spire is a great tree for a small garden where you need height without too much width; this is a tree that lives up to its name which m,ay be why it holds an RNS Award of Garden Merit. There is red and golden autumnal colour too. Prunus hillieri Spire is certainly a match for a Rancho Cherry when it comes to tall, slim flowering cherries for tight spaces.

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.
