Prunus can be deciduous or evergreen trees or shrubs with showy flowers in spring, and often good autumn foliage colour. Some have edible fruit in autumn, and a few species have ornamental bark.
'Rotundifolia' is vigorous, bushy and upright in habit, reaching a height of 5m. Oblong, glossy leaves are twisted around upon themselves, and are pale green beneath. Cup-shaped fragrant white flowers in upright racemes 5-12cm long in mid and late spring are followed by cherry-like red fruits, ripening to black.
Grow in any well-drained or moist but well-drained soil in sun or part shade, excellent for hedging but may become chlorotic in shallow chalk soil.
