Felix Jury

Prunus campanulata
Prunus Felix Jury blossom

Felix Jury is a small upright flowering cherry tree, typical of the species Prunus campanulata - the Formosan Cherry.

The blossom arrives extremely early in the spring, and is a deep pink colour, with contrasting golden yellow stamens.

Unlike most flowering cherries, the leaves appear at more or less the same time as the blossom - it is often one of the first varieties to show leaves.

After the flowers have finished, the bright red stems of the new leaf shoots help the tree to stand out.

How to grow

The species Prunus campanulata generally prefers a climate which is slightly warmer than we have in the UK. However Felix Jury is one of the hardiest forms of this species and suitable for most areas - but plant in a sheltered spot for best results.
