This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A spectacular, deciduous tree, with dark purple, oval leaves. Masses of bowl shaped, pale pink / white flowers smother its bare branches in early to mid and are occasionally followed by plum-like red or yellow fruits. A superb superb small tree that is easy to grow and will suit any garden.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Lightly prune in summer to retain the shape and cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.
