Black Cherry Plum (Prunus cerasifera 'Nigra') Bare Root - By Frank P Matthews™
A beautiful ornamental cherry, with some dark red fruit in autumn, this tree is sure to add character and style to your garden.

The blossom is a pale pink, which is echoed with the dark red foliage, making a striking comparison. Even the branches compliment the colour scheme, being a dark purple colour, which looks marvellous.

There may even be dark red fruit, which will add another dimension to the colours, and will also bring birds flocking to your garden. Whilst this fruit is edible, this plant is mainly ornamental, and will not always provide a crop.
