Prunus Accolade is a popular ornamental cherry tree, characterised by its graceful spreading habit, and well-suited to the climate of the UK.
The young branches appear to be weighed down by the mass of pink blossom in the spring.
In autumn the leaves develop orange - red tints.
Accolade makes a good choice as a medium-sized specimen tree for lawns or avenues.

Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches.
