The Bride

Prunus
The Bride has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Bride is a lovely small flowering cherry tree, named for its profusion of large single white flowers, which are highlighted by red stamens in early spring.

The tree remains small and compact, and is a good choice if you are looking for a beautiful flowering cherry for a small space.

We sometimes have "top-worked" Bride trees, grafted on a short length of clear stem. These will usually reach a mature height of about 2m.
