Wild Cherry hedging shrubs are unequivocally one of the most ornamental of our native hedging species. With masses of white flowers from early spring followed by red cherries which are popular with the birds and then wonderful autumnal colour, Prunus avium is an attractive native shrub or can be allowed to grow as a hedgerow tree.

*Please note, 1 bare root = 1 Wild Cherry plant, not a bundle of plants. We use a mixture of bare root photos taken in leaf from our growing sites in summer, as well as during the bare root planting season when Wild Cherry may be defoliated.

Good strong tall healthy plants with an expansive root system, growing away happily, will look lovely in the Spring. Love the flowers and the fruits which I will leave for the birds.
