Prunus Jacqueline is a fairly new variety from Belgium. It is a small deciduous tree with large, vivacious, cup-shaped pink flowers and outstanding autumn colours. Also commonly known as the Flowering Cherry, this tree will reach a height of up to 3m in 10 years. Yes it is a small tree but its features are worth significantly. It has the capability to delight your garden with its profuse flowering and beautiful autumn foliage.
Jacqueline cherry tree flowers abundantly in April with large flowers (4cm) across in umbels of 2-4 with intense pink colour. Flowers appear before the elliptic, dark-green leaves emerge on the shoots. These leaves develop brilliant orange-red hues in autumn, thus making any garden stand apart. Your cherry tree maybe blessed with fruits but they are small, inedible and inconspicuous.
This Prunus variety, like the other varieties, is very adaptable and will grow in most general soils in sun or partial shade. It prefers fertile, well-drained soils and can tolerate chalky soils as well.
In winter, the tree can withstand very low temperatures as it is very frost hardy. Due to the early growth of this large shrub, you may need to prune the young plant in order to form a proper shape and structure as the tree matures.
Use it in single planting or group planting in public gardens, parks, residential areas, etc. Find it contrasting exponentially with other green plants as a single specimen or even in groups. It also forms beautiful hedges.
