One of our favourite native trees. The Wild Cherry tree Prunus avium has a glorious cloud of white blossom in spring, with late summer fruit giving a vivid splash of shiny purple-red through its green leaves. The autumn brings colours of orange and crimson -red giving a cheery glow as the days darken.
Wild cherries are an asset to a garden with the fruit loved by birds, and the spring blossom is a source of nectar for bees, insects and small wildlife. The small cherries make a delicious cherry brandy.
