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
The Sargent cherry tree can be planted in most soils including chalk. Tolerant of Mother In-Laws and temperatures down to minus 20 degrees centigrade. Plant in full sun for best results but if you cannot handle that much excitement plant in the shade and get much less. Listed as an exposed or sheltered site suitable tree however if the weather channel describes the weather in your area using a name e.g. Storm Dennis, then this does not cover the term "exposed".

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.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.
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.
Fruit On Ornamental Cherry Trees
If any fruits are formed, they will be small, inedible and barely noticeable.
Cheaper Ornamental Cherry Trees

A less expensive tree that dies is not cheaper.
