- Common Name: Sargent's cherry
- Variety Code: 10423
Probably the best cherry for multi-season interest. In spring it produces a great unmistakeable cloud of brilliant rose-pink single flowers, followed by bronze-red new foliage which seasons to green by summer, then, unexpectedly, phases into spectacularly fiery autumn tones which rival even the acers in intensity. Growth habit is moderate to fast, somewhat open and spreading, producing a good sized tree to shelter under without creating heavy shade. It is also one of the few flowering cherries that regularly produces some fruit: gems of glossy yellow, orange, red and purple-black. Bark is dark chestnut-brown. Young foliage bronze-red.
