Winter flowering

Flowering cherry tree Prunus ‘Pendula Rubra’ is a small deciduous cherry tree with an attractive weeping habit. This ornamental flowering cherry tree is also known as Prunus subhirtella ‘Pendula Rubra’. 

This flowering cherry tree is unusual because it flowers when most other trees are bare.  The single flowers are single and a deep, rose pink. They emerge from darker pink buds and give an airy display, blooming in mild spells between November and February.  In autumn the leaves turn from green to yellow to give good autumn colour. Prunus ‘Pendula Rubra’ is ideal for a small or medium garden.

This tree has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit as an excellent garden tree.

Although flowering cherry trees are related to the edible cherries (they are all members of the prunus family), these ornamental cherry trees are grown for their beautiful blossom and good autumn colour. Many also have attractive satiny bark, so the trees remain interesting all through the year.

 

Unpack bare root trees immediately and plant as soon as possible after delivery.

Do not let the roots dry out!

 If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.

Your bare root trees will be delivered at the right time for planting. Normally between autumn and early spring, depending on weather conditions.

All our ornamental trees are delivered with FULL PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS.
