This is also known as x hillieri 'Spire' and P. 'Hillieri Spire'. It is a popular variety in streets, parks and gardens, where the conical, almost upright growth suits many confined sites and makes a handsome tree at all times. It flowers early for a cherry, starting during the first half of April when its large soft pink blooms appear in an impressive froth of colour. At that time the foliage is a rich reddish-purple, later turning yellowish, and then deep green, before the rich red autumn tints finish its display. Pruning is seldom necessary, but over-large trees may be trimmed in late summer. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
