This fast-growing, native cherry has white flowers in April and May and clusters of edible (though fairly sour) cherries later in the summer - very popular with the birds. This is a good plant for a woodland edge, in a hedgerow or near a stream. The thorny branches make it useful as an tough hedge or as part of a native hedgerow. This wild cherry is tolerant of limier soils than many plants, and has pretty russet coloured bark all year round, as well as reasonably good autumn colour. Plant in full sun or light shade in most soils.

  • Bare root plants. 
  • 60-90 cms tall.
  • Available November to March only.
