Autumn Beauty: Prunus Serrula

mahogany barked cherry

A magnificent small garden tree for year round interest its most prominent feature is its tactile, silky, polished bark. The smooth, mahogany bark peels in translucent cinnamon and honey coloured sheets to reveal a fresh new hue of bronze-red gloss beneath. Caught in autumn sunlight this tree almost glows. Common Name: Tibetan Cherry Tree
