Cherry Plum (Prunus cerasifera)
One of the first trees to bloom in spring, allowing its delicious fruit plenty of time to ripen for summer in the garden. Cherry plum flowers were used by Dr Edward Bach to create a remedy for people in fear of losing control of their behaviour, and are still used in Bach Flower Remedies today.
Prunus cerasifera or cherry plum, is an instantly recognisable garden tree that blooms beautifully in the spring with its iconic pink flowers! Making it an ideal garden gift.
It is also cultivated for its delicious cherry-plum-like fruits, which are a hybrid of a cherry and a plum. Birds love the fruits, and insects are drawn to the blossoms. Although resilient, the tree cannot withstand extremely high winds.
Naturally, it grows as a thick shrub, but it can also be easily pruned, giving the Cherry Plum flexibility as to where it can be planted, ranging from any size of garden. They can be planted in most soil types at any time of the year! Cherry Plum trees can be expected to reach heights of up to 12 metres.
