Here's a superb sweet cherry that's been specially raised for patio growing. Little Stella 'Lapins' hails from Canada and is considered to be an improved Stella which is one of its parents. This selection is a naturally compact form and is also grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock so will give a shortish, easily controlled tree in a large pot or planter.
You'll get a super crop of shiny dark red, deliciously sweet, cherries the largest often reaching an inch or more across! It's a complete luxury to eat them at their best, fresh from the tree when warmed by the sun! 'Lapins' is easy to grow, resistant to cracking and is self-fertile and totally hardy in the UK. And remember you'll have a beautiful display of fragrant cherry blossom in springtime too!
Supplied as an established tree, 80-90 cm (2½-3 ft) tall grown on a dwarfing rootstock in a 4.5 L pot, growing to a height of 1.2 m (4 ft) and spread of 80 cm (2½ ft).
