Ornamental Cherry Tree (Prunus `Accolade`)
Well-suited to a small garden as it has an upright, columnar shape and small height, only reaching around 5m. Perfect for non-giants that like to spend a lot of time in their garden who have emotional issues about their growth rate as a child.
During spring bronze new leaves open, turning rich green in summer and finally to fiery shades during autumn. Masses of large, fragrant, semi-double light pink blooms carpet the branches in late spring.
Considered to be a reliable ornamental Cherry tree, not because it will be at the train station to pick you up on time or order the online shopping before the milk runs out but more for making a regular blossom appearance at the right time of year. Expect the Accolade blossoms to make an appearance around April/May time although with the freaky weather we are having this could be plus or minus a few hours.
For best results plant in full sun. This does not mean wrap the roots in a controversial red top newspaper. It does mean expose to as much as possible the radiant effects of our nearest star. This is also not a suggestion that you take up rocket building and strap your Prunus Accolade to the side of it because you think the tree needs a pick me up.
Accolade is supplied at a height of between 1.5m to 2.4m in a 12L container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees. Should you want a larger tree then look at the one you ordered from us whilst on your knees or build a sunken viewing platform in your garden.

What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Ornamental Cherry Tree (Prunus `Accolade`)
Hi Alan, Many thanks for your amusing email. The Prunus Accolade tree arrived in perfect condition and beautifully packaged and as yet has not done anything naughty. I have not planted the tree yet as it is going to commemorate a very big landmark in my life. The day my mortgage is paid off....I thought about celebrating the usual way and then getting the hangover from hell and also wasting my money in the process and this seemed like a much better idea. If all goes well it should be sorted in a couple of weeks and I will raise a glass. Then every time I see the tree it will remind me of this monumental day. I am watering and feeding the tree in the meantime and I am sure that it has grown already. I am really pleased with the quality, the price and the communication from Trees online and would not hesitate to use you again. Kindest regards Sherrie 0616

All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

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.
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.
Fruit On Ornamental Cherry Trees
The fruits you get are small and 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.
