Compact trees for beautiful blossom
Pyrus salicifolia ‘Pendula’ AGm
In spring, the weeping ornamental pear is covered in scented white flowers that are set off beautifully by its grey-green foliage. And although we can’t eat the fruits (they are too bitter), the birds will enjoy them. H&S: 13ft (4m).
Prunus ‘Amanogawa’ AGm
A compact cherry tree that will fill your garden with semi-double pale-pink blossom each April. Perfect for borders, where its upright and columnar nature means it won’t take up too much space. HxS: 20x61⁄2ft (6x2m).
Prunus ‘the Bride’
The flowers on this small ornamental cherry are larger than those of many varieties and are a striking combination of pure white with red centres. A breathtaking sight, the blossom appears in March and April. H&S: 13ft (4m).
