Prunus x hillieri ‘Spire’
About Prunus x hillieri 'Spire'
As its name suggests, this cherry has an upright, narrow conical shape. It is excellent for small gardens and for use as a street tree. Medium-size single flowers create a soft pink cloud in spring; the autumn foliage is also attractive. Prunus x hillieri is a cross between P. incisa and P. sargentii; the cultivar 'Spire' was introduced in 1956.
