Prunus pumila 'Depressa' (Large Plant)

American Dwarf Cherry

Hardy Shrub

Prunus pumila 'Depressa' is a low growing, groundcover hardy shrub. The American Dwarf Cherry forms a dense carpet of grey green leaves on deep red stems in spring, which provides the setting for its dainty, very open white flowers. Later in the year, as autumn approaches, the foliage turns shades of red and orange, adding a touch of drama before they finally fall. Ideal for growing on banks, slopes or on low maintenance areas of your garden, this variety will suppress weeds whilst providing you with colour and interest throughout the year. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 300cm (118")

Plant cherry trees in any moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Incorporate plenty of compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Choose a final position in full sun.
Water Prunus trees regularly until fully established. Ornamental cherries require little aftercare. Simply remove any diseased, damaged or crossing shoots to maintain a healthy framework. When pruning cherries it is preferable to wait until midsummer to avoid the risk of ‘silver leaf’ infection. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant in spring, taking care not to mound mulch up against the stem.
