Sargent cherry (Prunus sargentii)
Sargent cherry has a rounded growth habit and can attain heights of 20 to 30 feet. One of the hardiest ornamental cherry trees with glossy bark, this should be used as a specimen plant for the garden. Pink, five-petaled flowers cover this cherry in early spring. Fruits are purplish-black and mature in midsummer. The shiny dark-green foliage turns bronze or red in fall. Glossy reddish-brown bark and pink flowers highlight this ornamental tree.
