With an upright habit, this ornamental deciduous tree displays tapered leaves ranging from bronze to mid-green. In early spring, it showcases striking saucer-shaped bright pink flowers on its bare branches. As the season progresses, the tree develops pale green, velvety fruits. 'Spring Glow' is an excellent option for small to medium-sized gardens that offer some protection from cold winds or late frosts, ensuring the preservation of its beautiful blossoms.

  • Garden care:
    When planting your ornamental cherry, prepare a hole up to three times the diameter of its root system. Fork over the base of the pit in readiness, incorporating plenty of organic matter into the backfill and planting hole. Avoiding frozen and waterlogged soil, trees should be planted out as they arrive. If you've ordered a bare root tree, soak the roots in a bucket of water for half an hour prior to planting, or if this is not possible, they can be heeled in temporarily, covering their roots with soil, or potted up. Choose a sheltered spot to protect emerging blossom. Lightly prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker, to retain an open ‘goblet' shape and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.
