Standard Winter Flowering Cherry 'Prunus subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea' 30l Pot 10/12 Girth
The Autumnalis Rosea cherry is a small deciduous tree of spreading habit that is a favourite among gardeners due the intermittent blooming of its semi-double pale pink flowers, which can appear in autumn, spring, and winter. So while other trees are bare and lifeless, this cherry tree still looks beautiful.
The Autumnalis Rosea Cherry won't block much sun from reaching your other plants so could be useful planted in a border.
This cherry is from our mature ornamental tree range. If you want a substantial flowering cherry in your garden, but don't want to have to wait too long for it to grow, then this is a great option for you. This tree is already over 2 meters in height and has a crown of multiple, good sized branches already developed.
As a five year old tree, this cherry already has a good root base established. However, the tree will require some attention for the first year as it recovers from the transplant shock, so regular watering is advised. Strong growth will resume after this period, and you should see your tree edging towards full maturity over the next 3-5 years.
We deliver straight to you door, which is just as well because this huge tree wouldn't fit in most vans, let alone the average family car. And the best thing about this is, we only charge £4.99 for delivery, and you'll have your tree within 2-3 working days of ordering - no one else on the web offers a service like this for trees of this size!

Caring and Maintenance
Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.
Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.
Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.
