Prunus cerasus ‘Rhexii’

Fruitless Sour Cherry


A slow growing hardy ornamental, ‘Rhexii’ will attain a rounded form with time.


Pure white, double-flowers which are quite tight, like little rosettes are produced freely in clusters on long pedicels, from mid to late-Spring. Flowers at the same time as ‘Kanzan’ and partners well with this variety.


A very old ornamental variety, Rhexii and is often noted in very early garden literature for its beauty.


Dark glossy green leaves in Summer, turning orange and red in Autumn.


Tree Size: 4 m high and 5 m wide (at 20 years)


Tree Care: For best results plant in full sun in fertile, free draining soil, preferably a friable loam with good aeration.


If the soil is free draining, dig a hole twice the size of the root ball, plant the tree so the top of the root ball is level with the soil line and back fill with a soil and compost mixture. If the soil is not free draining, plant the tree in a raised mound of soil and compost mix, to prevent water logging.


Water in well at planting, and water regularly, especially in dry spells. Cherries are shallow rooted and young trees will benefit from being mulched. Apply mulch in a ring around the tree base, keeping clear of the trunk.
