Royal Burgundy

Royal Burgundy is perhaps the most popular of the bronze-leaved flowering cherries.

It is a delightful tree, with superb dark pink spring blossom, which is accentuated by the deep bronze colours of the emerging foliage.

Over the summer the striking bronze foliage gives it a real presence.

In the autumn the leaves turn a spectacular fiery red, making this one of the best flowering cherries for autumn colour.
