$ 5.29

Description:

Prunus serrula, commonly called birchbark cherry, birchbark tree, paperbark cherry, cellophane bark cherry or redbark cherry, is, as the aforementioned common names suggest, most noted for its outstanding glossy reddish-brown bark. Old bark peels somewhat like a birch to reveal a polished sheen that is typically described as being reddish brown, copper brown or mahogany brown. Native to Western China and Tibet, this is a rounded deciduous tree that typically grows to 20-30’ tall. Narrow, lance-shaped, willow-like, dark green leaves (to 4” long) are serrated (serrula meaning with saw-like teeth). No fall color. Small white flowers (3/4” across) bloom singly or in 2 to 4-flowered umbels in March-April as the foliage emerges.
