The 'Stella' cherry is a highly popular, self-fertile sweet cherry variety, renowned for its adaptability to various soil types and climates, making it a favorable choice for a range of environments. A half-standard 'Stella' denotes a specific tree form, with a clear stem/trunk beneath a bushy, well-branched crown, typically reaching heights of about 10-15 feet.

Originating from Canada, the 'Stella' cherry tree produces luscious, dark-red to almost black, heart-shaped fruits, known for their succulent, sweet, and rich flavor, making them excellent for fresh eating, baking, and preserves. The fruits generally mature around mid-summer, attracting gardeners keen on early harvests.

Apart from its culinary virtues, 'Stella' serves an ornamental purpose, exhibiting beautiful white blossoms in spring that are a feast to the eyes, contributing to the aesthetic value of gardens. This cherry variety is particularly suitable for smaller gardens or limited spaces due to its compact growth habit.

Being self-fertile means 'Stella' does not require another tree for pollination, which simplifies orchard management and enhances its appeal for home gardeners. However, planting it with other varieties can potentially improve fruit yield and quality. Care considerations include regular watering, pruning, and monitoring for pests and diseases.

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).
