This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: all soils except waterlogged
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This small, shrubby, deciduous tree forms a spreading canopy of shallowly lobed rich green leaves, studded in mid- to late spring, with clusters of small white, double flowers. These usually fade to soft pink as they age, and are then followed by rounded red berries. A great ornamental option for the smaller garden or woodland setting, and as the stems are thorny, it's excellent for deterring vandals.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
  • Humans/Pets: Fruit are ornamental - not to be eaten
