Wild Cherry Hedge Plants Description

Wild Cherry awakens in Spring with new leaves and flowers appearing simultaneously. The long-lasting flowers appear from red buds and are held in long drooping clusters, like cotton wool.

The leaves are bright green, oval and tooth edged. The cherries have less flesh and are more bitter than the cultivated species, but have the same dark red colour from July and will be quickly stripped from the tree by birds. The Autumn colour of the leaves is spectacular. The tree has a neat and tidy shape with a straight trunk (with smooth red brown bark) and a rounded crown.

The tree is successful in light shade but fruits better in a sunny position and it does well in most soils and situations other than exposed sites (where the flowers would blow off) and waterlogged soils.

Wild Cherry is also a UK native hedging species and can be found in our Mixed Native hedging selection. See our full range of Mixed Native Hedging Packs for more information.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

General hedge trimming should be done twice a year, late Winter and early Spring. It is important to prune at the right time, so as not to remove new growing shoots.
