Spring Glow is a stand-out pink flowering cherry tree - the vibrant intensity of the blossom colour in early spring makes it easy to spot a Spring Glow tree from a distance. Another bonus is that the blossom is long-lasting.
Technically Spring Glow is not really a flowering cherry but rather a form of the flowering cherry plum or Myrobalan plum (Prunus cerasifera). The single flowers are large, dark pink in colour, and appear early in the spring - usually in the middle of March.
The leaves appear after the blossom, and have an attractive copper red colour - and they remain this colour until the autumn. For this reason Spring Glow is an excellent choice for summer colour, with the distinctive bright leaf colour standing out clearly beside other species with green foliage.
Spring Glow grows with an upright habit.

Spring Glow was developed in Australia at the start of the 20th century. It is usually listed in the species Prunus x persicoides, which would make it effectively a cross between a peach and and almond. However it has a different habit and flower shape to either of them, and unlike them is not susceptible to peach leaf-curl infection. It is best considered a flowering cherry-plum, i.e. Prunus cerasifera.
