Prunus Jacqueline Flowing Cherry Tree. Click the link for Cheaper Bare Root Prunus Jacqueline
Compared to most other flowering Cherry trees, this one has a couple of outstanding attributes. The large, single, early flowers are ideal for the impatient as they show early in April, the deep floral pinks ideal for the colour lovers and the striking Autumnal orange and red colours a cheery garden pick me up before the plod into Winter.
In horticultural terms this flowering Cherry is new to the scene and was discovered in Belgium which doesn't mean it has strong liberal values and will always lean to the left.
Early growth with this flowering cherry maybe a little non conformist so some formative pruning maybe called for within the first few seasons.
Prunus Jacqueline is considered a small tree so expect a 10 year height of around 3m and 5m wide. Considered to be UK fully hardy.
This flowering Cherry tree is perfect for the following situations:
You want some early colour in your garden.
You want something new in the horticultural World.
You are buying trees alphabetically and your last tree began with an "i".
Maybe you are a liberal and plant it slanted to make a passive aggressive statement to your UKIP/BNP/EDL supporting neighbour.
Planting A Prunus Jacqueline Flowing Cherry Tree
When asked what soil can this tree be planted in, the nursery replied "any soil". Usually that means chalk and clay tolerant with good drainage.
As it was near Christmas and we knew they were busy we never clarified if the following covered "any soil".
Anything within 1 mile of Chernobyl.
Any gardens from the lost city of Atlantis.
Any landscape from Game Of Thrones (mostly because they are CGI)

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.
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
There are cheaper cherry trees out there but you need to make sure that they are the same height and age, VAT and delivery is included in the display price, comes with a FREE TREE WARRANTY, certified virus free, UK grown and not cheaper EU imports used to better weather. A less expensive tree that dies is not cheaper.
If you get all that, let us know, we will try to price match.
