Hally Jolivette is an attractive medium-sized flowering cherry. It features bright white semi-double flowers.

By the standards of ornamental cherries the blossom is quite long-lasting, regularly exceeding 2 weeks. This is because, unusually for a flowering cherry, the individual flowers do not all open at once. Flowering also tends to start from a very young age, and it is quite common for a 2-year old tree to have blossom.

Hally Jolivette was raised by Dr Karl Sax of the Arnold Arboretum in Boston, USA, during the 1940s, and named after his wife. The story of its development is told in an article by his great grand-son.

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. The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
