Branklyn is a form of Prunus serrula, well-known for its glossy striated peeling brown bark, which is a year-round attraction.

The flowers are borne in late April and are small and plain white, not as profuse as other flowering cherries.

The narrow leaves are much smaller than other flowering cherries, contributing to the pleasing appearance of the tree over the summer.

This variety is named after Branklyn Gardens, in Scotland, but the species originates in western China.
