Deciduous, rounded tree most noteworthy for its beautiful reddish-brown peeling bark. Bark has a shiny, polished sheen, making it even more attractive. Small white flowers in early spring emerge at the same time or are followed by green foliage. Flowers mature into small red cherry-like fruits.

Info

If you look closely, you can see the bark which has peeled off the trunks of this tree; the peeled bark in whorls is translucent, but the trunk which is left is amazing--shining with colors of mahogony to green and smooth as silk. Although this is considered a flowering cherry, you don't notice the flowers which are small and white. The tree may get to 25'. zone 6

Info

Of all the cherry trees there are none so outstanding for brilliant red, shiny bark. With the absence of leaves in winter, the bark becomes more visible and one will welcome the peeling colors and textures. Single, white flowers shine in the spring. Grows to 20'.
