A change from the traditonal blousy cherry, the purple-leaved bird cherry is a more unusual choice for the large garden. Dark purple shoots appear in spring followed by coppery-purple foliage that gradually fades to green with age. The dark foliage is the perfect foil for the delicate pale-pink flowers, which are held in elongated clusters. These are followed later in the year by black fruits which birds adore. The bird cherry will grow on most neutral to alkaline (limy) soils and is particularly good for chalky soils.
