A favourite of Monty Don's the Cerasifera Nigra was commonly planted as a street tree in the post-war period.

The tree is distinctive for its small very dark leaves and will often produce juicy plums. Hence its name 'cerasifera' cherry fruit 'nigra' black.

The tree will produce beautiful blooms of pale pink single flowers with deep pink buds and long stamens come April.

The cultivar can grow very tall reaching up to 12 metres and was granted the RHS Award of Merit.
