Albertii

Prunus padus Albertii blossom

The species Prunus padus is native to Britain as well as northern Europe and Asia. It is commonly known as the Bird cherry.

Albertii is a typical example, notable for its compact proportions, upright growth, and particularly its profuse blossom - which arrives quite late in the spring.

The flowers sometimes have an almond-like scent.

We only produce this variety occasionally, see also Prunus padus 'Le Thoureil'.
