Sargent Cherry – Prunus sargentii
This specimen is 24 years old
With good fall color and delicate pink blossoms, Sargent cherry is highly recommended for the home and urban landscape.
Growing at a moderate rate into a 25 to 40-foot-high, upright-spreading to rounded tree, Sargent cherry makes an ideal shade tree, spreading as wide as it is tall and casting dense shade below.
Fast-growing and hardy, Sargent cherry offers an outstanding spring floral display and abundant fruit.
In late April or early May the one-inch-wide, pink to deep pink single blooms appear before the new red-tinged leaves unfold. The small, pea-sized fruits which follow are red, ripening to a dark purple in June and July.
