Discovered in the 1950’s by Waterers Nursery of Surrey, this hybrid brings together the best of two Prunus varieties. Crossing Prunus subhirtella, renowned for its early pink blossoms, and Prunus sargentii, celebrated for its vibrant autumn leaf colours, the Prunus ‘Accolade’ was created.
This elegant specimen features spreading branches that gracefully arch and droop from the stem. In early spring, the pink buds emerge and are the first to unfurl. As the season progresses, the branches transform into breath-taking mass adorned with beautiful semi-double flowers that envelop the entire canopy. The pure pink hues of these flowers gently fade to a subtle water-wash pink as the leaves unfold.
