Why the Stella Sweet Cherry?
What if—instead of buying pricey supermarket cherries shipped in from hundreds of miles away—you could pick sweet cherries right off your own tree in the backyard? With a Stella Sweet Cherry Tree from Bower & Branch™, you and your family can enjoy the pleasure of flavorful home-grown cherries each summer. Stella’s succulent dark red fruits are good for baking into pies and cobblers, but they are even better for eating fresh. High in fiber, low in calories, and rich in antioxidants, these luscious sweet cherries are the kind of treat you can feel good about snacking on, too!
The Stella Sweet Cherry Tree was developed in Canada at the Summerland agricultural research station in British Columbia in 1968. It was a revolutionary tree, because it was the first Sweet Cherry that didn’t need another variety of Cherry to pollinate it. Until Stella came along, you needed to plant two different varieties in order to get a good crop of cherries. With Stella, you need only one tree, and the bees will do all the work of pollinating the lovely white Cherry blossoms in spring. Stella was also selected for its excellent flavor and for its moderate resistance to cracking, an occurrence that can happen when the fruit ripens in rainy weather.
How to use in the landscape?
Not just functional but pretty as well, the Stella Sweet Cherry Tree will adorn your landscape with scores of radiant white flowers that hug the branches and give off a sweet scent. The blossoms call out to honeybees and other pollinators, who get right to work. Stella, of course, pollinates itself, but it will also pollinate other Sweet Cherries, should you choose to get another tree that requires a partner.

How To Plant
The Stella Sweet Cherry Tree isn’t a plant-it-and-forget-it kind of tree, but the rewards you receive from it will justify the extra effort you may have to put in. Plant this fast-growing tree in a warm, sunny site in moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Regular water is important during the growing season, especially during the critical establishment period.

How Does Shipping Work?
Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.
We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.
*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
