Prunus is a large genus of deciduous or evergreen trees and shrubs, including the main fruit-bearing trees, such as peaches, cherries, plums etc.
Latin name: Prunus sargentii
They are cultivated for their ornamental flowers, for their fruits or for their showy foliage that often takes on bright red and yellow hues in autumn.
They grow in full sun, in moderately moist soils. The evergreen species do equally well in part shade.
Plant in rows, in orchards and in hedges or alone.
Mostly propagated by grafting and less by cuttings.
Big, deciduous tree with dark green leaves and pink flowers that are borne in spring before the leaves unfold.
