This floriferous, early flowering cherry has finely textured leaves, graceful pendulous branches, and pink flowers. Dark green summer foliage turns yellow to bronze in fall. Although not showy, the red fruit matures to black. The slightly contorted branches add to the appeal of this tree. Prefers a sunny location sheltered from the wind.
