Prunus Avium ‘Sunburst’ is a medium-sized, self-fertile, deciduous cherry tree with upright, rounded crown, oval, serrated, green leaves, and lovely, white blossoms in spring. A great yield of dark red, almost black, cherries with very sweet and juicy taste is ready for harvesting in summer. Sweet Cherry ‘Sunburst’ thrives in average, moderately fertile, slightly acidic, medium moisture, well-drained soils and grows best in full sun. Doesn’t tolerate too wet or waterlogged soils. It is very resistant to frost but needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. Late frosts may damage the flower buds. A self-pollinating variety and a good pollinator for other varieties. Low maintenance plant. Suited for fan-training. Prunus Avium ‘Sunburst’ is primarily grown for its sweet, juicy cherry fruits, but it can be a great specimen tree in a small informal or cottage garden. Excellent in beds and borders, and wall-side borders. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

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).
