Flowering Cherry : ACCOLADE Standard ( Mazzard )


6 in stock

Lots of folks would love a flowering cherry. The question becomes, how to maximize both beauty and hardiness from amongst the bewildering array of subspecies and varieties. We've settled on Accolade to give you the best bang for your buck, as the P. sargentii side provides superior hardiness, while the P. subhirtella strain adds gorgeous splendor. In early spring, large drooping clusters of semi-double, pink blossoms cover the spreading branches will take your breath away. Disease-resistant green leaves turn shades of orange, yellow and red by fall. The breathtaking blossoms are the main event with little fruit produced for the birds. Accolade is fairly fast growing and can reach 6-7.5m (20-25') in both height and width. (Prunus sargentii x P. subhirtella)

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
