Sargent's Cherry (Prunus sargentii) is a classic flowering cherry tree, at home in any situation. It forms a reasonably large tree with a graceful upright-spreading shape, and works equally well when planted as a lone specimen tree in smaller gardens or in a group in larger gardens.
Sargent's Cherry makes a fine sight in early spring, clothed in a mass of large pink single flowers, contrasting with the emerging new leaves. Although ornamental cherry trees are usually chosen for their spring blossom, Sargent's Cherry is equally impressive in the autumn, when the leaves turn an attractive golden red.
