When does Prunus 'serrula' get its shiny mahogany bark? We are planning to buy a reasonably mature tree in the name of our new granddaughter, but don't want to have to wait many years before we see the shiny bark (which is the main reason for choosing this tree). I've been offered one with a trunk circumference of 18 cms by a local firm, and I will of course ask how old it is.
