Early flowering cherry trees

There is something lovely about seeing blossom on trees at the end of a wet dreary winter. One of the earliest is Prunus Okame or the Okame cherry. It has carmine pink flowers in March - and sometimes late February depending on the weather.

Prunus Okame thrives in an open sunny site and in most moist well-drained soil including chalk. It grows 5-8m tall and wide ultimately.

Another early flowering cherry is Prunus cerasifera nigra - dark leaved cherry plum which has single pale pink flowers followed by deep burgundy leaves. Available as a single or multi-stem tree. A great tree for early forage for bees!
