Add a touch of colour to your garden or patio with the lovely Flowering Cherry tree, Prunus 'Royal Burgundy'. It features delightful, attention grabbing double shell blush pink flowers that hang in dense bundles in spring, from March to April.
Spring also brings the attractive new foliage growth which appears as a unique deep wine and purple glossy shade. They create a stunning effect contrasting with the pink blooms. The leaves have a bronze tint and mature to a bold red colour that remains throughout the summer. They have an ornate shape with serrated edges, adding interest to the look. In autumn, the foliage turns to a bright scarlet before falling. The plant is deciduous and will have no leaves in winter.
The Flowering Cherry tree is fully hardy and easy to grow. It will tolerate most types of soil but prefers not be planted in waterlogged or chalky sites. Plant in full sun to get the best out of the colourful leaves. It has an upright spreading habit and will grow to be around 4m at full maturity with a vase-like shape.
If you are looking for an ornamental tree for a small garden, this is the perfect choice. It is a cultivar of the popular Cherry prunus Kanzan, and was only introduced around 1990. Plant alongside the Kanzan - the Royal Burgundy has wine-coloured leaves and the Kanzan has a rich-green foliage, creating a picture-perfect setting in your garden.
