Prunus padus

The magnificent specimen of the Bird Cherry, Prunus padus is like a frozen waterfall as the foamy white flowers tumble down in loose racemes on weeping branches all the way to the ground.
The loose panicles of white, five petalled flowers have crimped edges and are set off perfectly by the ovate mid green foliage. These leaves will be ravaged by mid summer by the Cherry Sawfly larvae who on hatching web the leaf into a hammock shape for protections.
