Cherry 'Iford Flowering'

Prunus, Ornamental Cherry

 Customer Rating
A fantastic opportunity to plant this stunning, historic tree in your own garden! At the turn of the 19th century Harold Peto, architect and garden designer, found a small and completely pendulous pale shell pink flowering cherry on one of his plant collecting trips to the East. He named it the Iford Cherry and it was planted on the Iford terraces and trailed down the terrace banks and along the paths creating a truly magnificent sight by all accounts of the time. In 1999 the present owners of Iford Manor decided to propagate from the only surviving tree which by then had only one living branch which was no thicker than a pencil. Graft wood was taken and the tree died a few weeks later. Three trees were raised from the grafts and became the mother wood for the trees now for sale.

This delightful and historic tree is ideal for growing in a container or as a small tree in the garden. It flowers in early spring and has a marvellous bronze/red leaf colour during the Autumn. Decorative Tree Height to 1-1.5m. Flowers early April.

A much-discussed plant, as it can sometimes be spotted in hedgerows in the UK, and is recognisable by its colourful seed heads. The wood from the Spindle Bush was originally used for making spindles, hence the name.

The autumn colour is phenomenal! Then, as if that wasn’t enough, the small flowers fade, and winged fruits appear, which are orange and red. Height: 3m (10'). Spread: 2.5m (8.2’).
