Prunus 'Kursar' is a distinguished variety of ornamental cherry tree, appreciated for its abundant, deep pink blossoms that grace its branches in spring, creating a breathtaking display. This small, deciduous tree exhibits a compact growth habit, typically reaching around 8 meters in height when fully mature, making it a suitable choice for smaller gardens or landscapes.

The leaves of Prunus 'Kursar' emerge with a bronze hue, transitioning to green as they mature, and finally adopting vibrant shades of orange and red in the autumn, adding a secondary layer of aesthetic appeal to the plant. The blossoms are not only a visual delight but also attract various pollinators, benefiting local ecosystems. While it does not bear commercially valuable fruit, its ornamental charm compensates abundantly.

Originating from a hybridization program, Prunus 'Kursar' is celebrated for its resilience and adaptability, thriving in well-drained soils and sunny locations. It is often utilized as a specimen tree in residential and public gardens for its impressive floral display and the scenic ambiance it provides. Regular pruning and care ensure its optimal growth and longevity, allowing it to be a timeless addition to any garden setting, invoking the ethereal beauty of spring year after year.

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).
