Prunus Sargentii Sargents Cherry Tree AKA Prunus serrulata var. Sachalinensis or Prunus Sachalinensis
This is a great tree to buy for anyone that has been in the army or is called "Prunus" or "Tree". Another great reason to buy Sargents Cherry tree is that the new foliage is a strong bronze to red colour and contrasts well with the large pink blossom. Compared to other Prunus, the colours it shows do stand out which would be one of the reasons it has the RHS Award Of Garden Merit. The older foliage turns mid-green which then goes to an Autumnal strong yellow and then a dark orange. There are other colours centred around worm pooh but that depends if you compost or not.
If you are an impatient gardener then the early flowering period will be of interest which should be around March.
A medium-sized tree so expect a 10-year height of around 4m x 3m. It could go on to grow to around 12m x 8m but this is wholly dependent on local conditions such as weather and low flying sharp clouds.
Planting Prunus Sargentii Sargents Cherry Tree

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
