Prunus serrula, or Tibetan Cherry Tree, is a medium-sized, rounded, deciduous tree with a stunning, glossy, peeling, coppery-brown to mahogany bark with horizontal lenticels and narrow, lance-shaped, willow-like, dark green leaves, golden yellow in autumn. Small, white flowers bloom in spring and are followed by red, cherry-like fruit. Attractive to birds and bees. Tibetan Cherry Tree grows best in fertile, organically rich, moist, well-drained soils, but it is adaptable to moist soils and garden conditions. It prefers full sun to partial shade. Tolerant of urban pollution, therefore, suitable for urban areas. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. The unusual, glowing and peeling bark is the main ornamental feature of the Prunus serrula tree, especially in winter, and it is best to be grown in a place where the bark will be seen. It is perfect as a specimen plant in cottage, urban, and wildlife gardens. Great for beds and borders.

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).
