Prunus 'Accolade' is a small to medium-sized deciduous tree that is highly valued for its stunning display of pink flowers in spring. It is a hybrid of Prunus sargentii and Prunus subhirtella, and was first introduced in Japan in the 1950s. In spring, the tree produces large, semi-double, pink flowers that emerge from deep pink buds. The flowers are borne in clusters along the branches and create a beautiful show of color. As the season progresses, the leaves emerge, providing a fresh green backdrop for the flowers. In the fall, the leaves turn a vibrant shade of orange-red, adding to the tree's ornamental appeal. Prunus 'Accolade' is a relatively slow-growing tree, reaching a height of around 20 feet (6 meters) with a similar spread. It has a vase-shaped habit, with a broad, spreading crown and a single trunk. The bark is smooth and grey-brown, and the branches are slender and somewhat weeping. This tree prefers a well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. It is generally low maintenance and has few pest or disease problems. It is a great choice for a small garden or as a specimen tree in a larger landscape. Its stunning spring display and attractive fall color make it a popular choice for homeowners, landscapers, and garden designers alike.

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).
