Also known as gean and the parent of the sweet cherry, this makes a very large tree eventually with broad spreading branches. It is shapely at all times, however, growing with a straight upright main stem at the centre of a neatly conical open shape, and a trunk which is chestnut brown, silvery and peeling with age. The double form 'Plena' ('Multiplex', 'Grandiflora') is even more beautiful than the type when its branches are decked out with dense rows of fully double, brilliant white flowers for much of May. In autumn the foliage turns vivid yellow, orange and red. The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
