Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' Tree

Dwarf Flowering Cherry Trees

from From £44.99 (ex. VAT)
Was: £49.99 (ex. VAT)
( £53.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' or the Dwarf flowering cherry tree as it is more commonly known is a truly delightful small tree. As the name suggests this Flowering cherry is a dwarf version of the popular Prunus 'Pink Perfection'. Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' will reach an estimated height and spread of just 3 x 3 metres in 20 years and takes well to pruning in the winter months should you wish to keep it smaller still.

The double pink flowers create a beautiful display in April-May and compliment the bronzed new, young foliage, which turns a polished, mid-green before developing shades of red and orange in the autumn. 'Little Pink Perfection' is tolerant of pollution and can be grown in most soils except very wet or chalky, shallow conditions. A great choice for smaller spaces, patios or grown in a pot.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver and this takes a bit of scheduling.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure and at no extra charge. Although we really don't like to give ourselves wriggle room (because we so rarely need it!), we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Delivery Costs

Smaller trees/bushes have a delivery charge of £7.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands). Medium trees of a height of 1.5-2 metres have a delivery charge of £9.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands). Orders for multiple trees have a single delivery cost of £12.95 plus vat (excluding Highlands and Islands).

Mature trees and pleached trees are more expensive to deliver. Cost varies by postcode and is calculated in the check out process. You can buy more than one tree for the same delivery cost, so if you are purchasing a good number of trees it works out to be economical.

Highlands and Islands charges start from £29.95 plus vat and are calculated in the check out process.

Northern Ireland, Channel Islands and Overseas Destinations

Our courier charges are not viable for just one or two trees, but if you have a larger requirement then please do speak to us and we'll see if we can find a solution.

Planting Advice for Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' Trees

When planting Dwarf flowering cherry trees, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown dwarf fblossom trees can be planted at any time of the year.

To prepare the site, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole. Dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 1.5 sizes wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. We recommend using a stake and tie when planting, which will ensure your roots are well anchored. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

After Care Advice for Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' Trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of warm or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little, make sure not to over water.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first 3 years. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously.
If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Prunus 'Little Pink Perfection' Trees

Although it is possible to simply leave your Dwarf flowering cherry tree to its own devices, it can be encouraged by gentle pruning. If you prune your tree for the first few years it will create a more balanced branch framework. Prune after flowering i.e. after the petals have dropped but before the new shoot growth appears.

After two to three years, you will only need to remove any damaged or unwanted branches. However, the formative pruning that you have already carried out will have led to a healthier tree, less likely to need this.
