Prunus x hillieri 'Spire' is a small, compact, vase-shaped flowering cherry tree of upright habit, with small, dark green leaves, bronze when young and vivid orange-red in autumn. As the leaves emerge, fragrant, single, soft-pink flowers appear on long petals along the branches in clusters of 3 to 5. It is sterile, therefore, doesn’t produce fruit. Prunus x hillieri 'Spire' a cross between Prunus sargentii and Prunus Yedoensis. It can grow in a wide range of soils, but prefers fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun. It’s a tough plant, resistant to frost and urban conditions. Low maintenance, doesn’t require much pruning, but if pruned regularly, it can be kept very narrow. Cherry 'Spire' is a wonderful, elegant, flowering cherry, perfect for small informal, cottage, urban or wildlife gardens. Excellent for urban areas, especially for narrow streets. Great in beds and borders, wall-side borders, or for hedges and screens. Suitable for growing in containers.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
