Prunus Cerasifera Nigra

Prunus cerasifera Nigra, the Purple leaf Cherry Plum, is an ornamental, small, deciduous tree with rich dark purple foliage and white flowers with a pink tinge in February-April. These ripen into edible red cherry-sized plums in July which are quite sweet. A really easy to grow and tidy little tree, Prunus cerasifera Nigra is suitable for most small gardens reaching a height of about 6 metres.

History & uses of Prunus cerasifera Nigra: 

This variety was bred in 1916 in America. It has won both the RHS Award of Garden Merit for its outstanding deep purple foliage and the First Class Certificate for its cut flowers which are much used in Japanese style flower arrangements

How Standard Trees are Measured: All our ornamental trees, are graded by their girth in centimetres - measured 1 metre above ground level. A 6/8 standard has a trunk with a girth of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has one of 8-10 centimetres. In any variety, an 8/10 is taller than a 6/8 but the heights between different varieties can vary hugely. Most of our standard trees are between about 2.5 - 4.5 metres tall.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
