General tree description
Prunus 'Sunset Boulevard' is initially a narrow, conical tree, but broadens with age to a more oval shape. It can grow to around 12 metres tall. Its leaves are elliptical and medium sized for a cherry. They emerge coppery in colour, turning green and finally golden yellow in autumn. Large (4cm across) flowers appear with the young leaves. They are white tinged with pink at the edges, held on the tree in pairs, and lasting longer than many other cherries.
