The wild cherry or Prunus Avium is native to the UK and throughout Europe except the very north. Its spring flowers provide an early source of nectar and pollen for bees and the fruit is eaten by other wildlife especially birds. Caterpillars enjoy the foliage of the Gean as one of their main food sources.
Prunus Avium is also useful for planting in areas such as shelter belts, and woodland edges as they tolerate a variety of soil types.
The mature Gean has a shiny dark brown bark with cream coloured horizontal lines. Its leaves are green, toothed with pointed tips. Flowers are cup shaped with five petals. The mature Prunus Avium can reach heights on 30m.
