Prunus serrula

Birch Bark Cherry Tree


The Temple Garden


This small tree, up to 5m, ia appropriately named the 'Birch Barked Cherry' for its polished mahogany coloured bark, which peels away in bands with age. The brilliance and shine of the bark is attractive throughout the year, particularly during winter. Small, white flowers in spring are virtually concealed by willow-like leaves in spring, followed by small cherry-like fruits.
