Plena is a form of the native English wild cherry or "Gean" which has been grown for hundreds of years. The main difference is that whilst the regular Prunus avium has single flowers, Plena has double flowers. It is sometimes known as the double "Gean" for this reason.

The blossom is pure white and borne in great profusion. The young leaves start out a light coppery colour, soon becoming green as the blossom fades, and then crimson and yellow in the autumn.

The tree is naturally vigorous, and grows with a strong upright form.
