Prunus serrula is often known as the Birch Bark Cherry on account of its distinctive glossy brown striated bark, which peels away to reveal lower layers underneath.
This gives the tree a uniquely attractive appearance year-round.
The small flowers are a plain white colour, usually blooming in April.
The green leaves turn yellow in the autumn.
