Prunus cerasifera


Rarely as a tree in gardens, although local councils and highway agencies often use it for roadside planting because of its dense twiggy habit. However as a hedge of either only green or only purple, it makes a very effective and attractive hedge. Alternate planting of blocks of greenĀ  and purple works well too.

Flower colours vary depending upon variety
