This is a rare and unusal specimen, deciduous, tree in the UK, although it has been cultivated in China and Korea for over 1500 years and is perfectly hardy for the UK climate..
It is commonly known as the Chinese Plum or Japanese Apricot, this stunning tree is an absolute show-stopper and will make a beautiful ornamental focal point in any garden.
A lovely sculptural shaped tree, bearing beautiful pink blossoms that appear in Spring on bare stems.
The flowers are followed by fruits that are commonly used in Asian cuisine, the Autumn leaves turn a lovely golden colour, so there are many points of interest with this ornamental tree throughout the year.
