Buy Prunus cerasifera 'Nigra ' black-leaved plum: Purple leaves and pale pink/white blossom in spring.

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-spring and are occasionally followed by plum-like red or yellow fruits. A 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 crossing branches.
