Sargent Cherry Tree

Sargent Cherry Tree

Prunus sargentii

Beautiful single blossom cherry tree, has a small purplish fruit that birds love, in the autumn it turns a gorgeous bronze color. Without pruning it could reach 40' but under cultivation usually is trained to a more restrained height and shape.

That concludes the Cherry Tree series for this spring. Coming up, because Lex made me curious about what a flowering crab apple looks like, one of those.
