Prunus serrula 'Tibetica' is appropriately named the ‘Birch Barked Cherry’ for its polished mahogany coloured bark, which peels away in bands with age. The brilliance and shine of the bark is attractive throughout the year, especially during winter. Small, white flowers are virtually concealed by willow-like leaves in spring, followed by small cherry-like fruits.
This Flowering Cherry Tree is supplied in a 10 litre container suitable for planting all year round. The total height of this half standard tree is approximately 1.8-2.2m (6-7ft).
