General tree description

Prunus incisa is a small tree up to 10 metres tall, or more often a dense, bushy shrub up to 6 metres in height. Its bark is smooth and purplish-grey with brown lenticel bands. There are abundant white or pale pink flowers in March. The flowers are small (22mm) and have notched or jagged petals. The leaves are also small (up to 6 x 3cm), reddish at first, then light green, turning in autumn to vivid yellow and orange. They are hairy above, oblong to ovate in shape, and deeply (incisely) double-toothed. The small (6mm), roundish, purple-black fruits are produced only occasionally.
