    Lots of suppliers in Australia http://www.flemings.com.au/ornamental_details.asp?CULT_ID=FASTNIGR but can't find any in UK.

    That seems like a very tricky-to-get-hold-of tree. May I ask why you want that particular cultivar? As there are many others that are similar, would they be of interest? image

    I have prunus cerasifera nigra - which is readily available and similar colour to what you are looking for.

    Where did you see this plant Denise and what makes it distinctive?

    There may be a very similar cultivar in the UK.

    As has already been established, Flemings are in Australia - the request is for a supplier for the UK. image
