Description

This extremely attractive tree is adorned with sprays of pastel pink flowers which later become clusters of yellow cherries that turns bright red as they ripen and can be eaten raw or cooked. Also prized for its attractive ringed bark, it is unusual in that it flowers in autumn and winter when little other colour is around. Finally, the fruits and the leaves give a dark green dye, seeds can be used in the manufacture of necklaces, the wood is hard, strong, durable and aromatic, and branches are used as walking sticks.

Sowing Advice

These seeds may need a further period of stratification to break their dormancy. Soak for 24 hours then place them in a sealed freezer bag in the fridge keeping them moist for a week or two. The seeds can then be sown and should germinate normally in a safe, bright, cold place outdoors, but can take up to 6 months or even longer so do not discard the seed pot. Alternatively sow the seed in a moist seed tray and leave outside over the winter to allow for natural stratification to occur.
