Sunset Boulevard is a tall flowering cherry that grows with a very upright vertical (fastigiate) form. The side-branches remain fairly short and grow sharply upwards from the central stem. The overall effect is similar to a champagne flute.

The spring blossom consists of relatively large single white flowers with pink centres.

In autumn, as the name suggests, the leaves take on orange hues.

The compact form and height make Sunset Boulevard a popular street and amenity tree, but it is well worth considering as a focal point in a larger garden. It also makes an impressive sight when used to line a long driveway.

History

Sunset Boulevard was developed as a seedling of Prunus serrulata at the Kalmthout Arboretum in Belgium.
