Prunus padus 'Summer Glow'

Prunus padus 'Summer Glow'
European bird cherry
A cheerful sight in late April

Common name European bird cherry
Family rosaceae
Life cycle tree (Z3-7)
Flowers white (April-May)
Size 20-50'
Light sun-part shade

Ornamental cherry tree, with clusters of white flowers in spring. 'Summer Glow' starts out with green leaves in spring; they turn purple later in the season. Ours is planted in the front yard, not too far from the rock garden – but positioned so that it should not cast too much shade onto the rockery.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
