Prunus triloba (flowering almond)

Prunus triloba (flowering almond) was £19.99 now £14.99
Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: moist, well-drained fertile soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: April Hardiness: fully hardy This plant has several seasons of interest throughout the year, so it makes it a great choice for the smaller garden. It is a piucture in early spring, when its bare branches are laden with clear pink bowl-shaped flowers. These are soon followed by rich green leaves, which have a slightly paler reverse, and later still (from midsummer to autumn rounded red fruits appear. Naturally bushy in habit, it can be trained as a small tree over time, and where space is at a premium, it will also make an ideal wall shrub if the old flowering shoots are pruned back immediately after the flowering has finished. Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune old flowering shoots immediately after flowering
