Description:

A change from the traditional blousy cherry, the bird cherry is a more unusual choice for the large garden. Dark purple shoots appear in spring followed by coppery-purple foliage that gradually fades to green with age. The dark foliage is the perfect foil for the delicate pale-pink flowers, which are held in elongated clusters. These are followed later in the year by black fruits which birds adore.

The plants have been grown in the nursery for 2 years(1+1) and will have an excellent root system ready for planting.
