Flowering cherry trees are valued for their aesthetic beauty and form one of the largest and most diverse genus with a huge number of ornamental trees of various habits, vigour and flower colour and shape.
Most species are small to moderately sized reaching heights of between 15 and 40 feet tall. Although flowering cherry trees can be planted as individual specimen trees in small gardens, rows can be planted to create flowering hedges or if planted on either side of a road or pathway, a blossoming tunnel.
At Nangle and Niesen we grow some magnificent cherry trees with a range of varieties to chose from. Examples include Prunus x yedoensis which puts on a wonderful display of almond-scented, blush-white blossom in late March and early April with fruits which are dark red, almost black.
Another favorite amongst our stock is Prunus serrula Amanogawa which is a late April and early May blossoming Japanese Cherry. Perfect as a street tree or garden tree where space is at a premium, this tightly columnar cultivar is often grown as a feathered tree to maximize the number of semi-double, shell pink flowers it produces.
Cherry trees beautify our gardens and parks with their soft clouds of flowers. All flowering cherries prefer deep, fresh, slightly acid soil and like full sunlight. They are very winter hardy and are pollution resistant.
