Tiltstone Hellfire is a small flowering cherry tree which grows with a classic upright vase shape. The relatively large single flowers are white tinged with light pink.
The leaves are a light copper green in the spring, emerging with the blossom. They turn dark green over the summer, and then (like many varieties related to Prunus sargentii) take on very strong red and orange tints in the late autumn.

Tiltstone Hellfire was raised by retired nurseryman Donavan Leaman, who became a novelist. He named it after his Tiltstone trilogy - although it is widely mis-spelled as Tilstone Hellfire. It is a cross of Prunus sargentii and Prunus Spire (itself related to Prunus sargentii). The name is quite appropriate, given the fiery autumn leaf colours of this variety.
