Handsome cherry tree with a lovely spring flowers, autumn colour and a slender, upright habit when young which spreads to more of a vase shape when established. In spring Prunus x hillieri 'Spire' has soft pink, single flowers which appear as the bronze, young leaves emerge.
These leaves stay a bronze colour for several weeks before turning cool green in summer. In a good, crisp autumn this tree also has eye-catching red and bronze tints to the leaves. Mature specimens of Prunus x hillieri 'Spire' also have attractive mahogany brown bark.
