With its vase-shaped form and breathtaking colour, 'Tiltstone Hellfire' lights up the landscape over a long season. Soft pink single blossoms burst forth in prolific clusters, cloaking this compact ornamental cherry tree in a spring floral display. The emerging bronze-flushed, almost metallic, foliage matures to become dark, glossy green leaves in summer before transforming into brilliant hues of red and purple in autumn.

  • 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.
