This is a fantastic, magnificent 5-6ft tall tree delivered in beautiful bud and bursting in to bloom in season.
The double flowering cherry-almond blooms in April and May, it originates from the far east where it is famed as a herald of Spring.
It is a dwarf compact tree that can grow up to 3 metres (10ft) tall, but is easily maintained at half that height if required. The tree also displays outstanding yellow-bronze autumn colour.
The medium-green leaves of this flowering tree have an elongated oval shape, and finely toothed edges, providing light dappled shade in the summer months to anything below.
Planted in a row, an avenue of trees consisting of the flowering cherry-almond will create an attractive and impressive border along a path, patio or property line.
Not only will this rustic plant withstand the toughest of winters but it is also gifted with a resistance to most pests and diseases.
This adaptable plant will also grow harmoniously on its own, and in its standard form such as this, will look fantastic in a courtyard planter. In any case, it makes a perfect plant for the most modern to the most traditional of gardens, why not try planted as a solitary specimen, and trained into a graceful tree in its own right?
