A vigorous grower, starting with an upright habit, spreading as it matures. Ideal for small gardens. Good to pollinate with Lapins, Morelo and Stela cherry trees. Grows well in deep, moist but well drained soil and in full sun.

As with all trees from the prunus family, the leaves will start to appear autumnal and slightly shabby from mid June onwards. This is not a disease, but is mainly due to this years contrasting weather conditions and will not affect the performance of the tree.



It is not self-fertile and needs a pollination partner:

Lapins, Merton Glory, Morello, Stella
