Tibetian Cherry

/, Blog/Tibetian Cherry

Below is the Tibetian Cherry (Prunus serrula).

It is an amazing feature tree for a small garden or a cluster of them can become a luminous surreal grove in the dark corner of a big garden.

They are not noted for their leaves or sometimes edible fruit but are the King of Bark in Winter. You can’t stop touching the trunk either, like it’s made from plastic silk if that can be imagined.

In the background is the thin vibrant branches of yellow and red stemmed Dogwood.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
