Prunus sargentii, commonly known as the Sargent cherry, is a stunning ornamental tree that graces gardens with its delicate beauty. Originating from Japan, this deciduous tree has found a welcoming home in the United Kingdom due to its adaptable nature and captivating aesthetic.

The Sargent cherry typically grows to a moderate size, reaching heights of around 6-9 meters (20-30 feet) with a spread of 4-6 meters (13-20 feet). Its growth habit is vase-shaped, creating an elegant silhouette that adds charm to any landscape. The tree features a rounded crown adorned with glossy, dark green leaves that turn vibrant shades of orange and red in autumn, providing a spectacular display of seasonal colour.

One of the most enchanting aspects of the Sargent cherry is its springtime bloom. Before the leaves unfurl, the tree bursts into a profusion of delicate, pale pink blossoms that cover the branches in a breathtaking floral spectacle. These fragrant flowers attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies, enhancing the biodiversity of the garden.

The Sargent cherry is relatively low-maintenance, making it an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners. It thrives in well-drained soil and prefers a sunny or partially shaded location. While the tree is tolerant of various soil types, it performs best in fertile, slightly acidic soil.

Pruning is minimal and mainly focuses on removing any dead or diseased branches to maintain the tree's health and shape. Adequate watering, especially during dry spells, and a layer of mulch around the base help to retain moisture and promote healthy growth.

The Sargent cherry's compact size makes it suitable for gardens of all sizes, including urban and suburban landscapes. Whether planted as a focal point, a specimen tree, or in a mixed border, this elegant tree adds year-round interest and beauty to any outdoor space. With its graceful form, stunning blossoms, and autumnal foliage, the Prunus sargentii is sure to captivate the hearts of gardeners and admirers 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).
