Buy Prunus triloba flowering almond: A must for smaller gardens

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

  • 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 picture 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

One year on, it is absolutely covered in pink flowers. I have had it for a year, it is grown in a large container, the leaves last year were very nice and its shape is ideal as a sweet pea support...



stunning in springtime


Had seen this in a neighbours garden and just had to get one myself. Now a year on and its a mass of pink buds, cant wait for them to open.

Prunus Triloba Shrub - can you please tell me if these plants have invasive roots?


Hello, I have never heard of the roots being particularly invasive, however they can be quite shallow - and the plant may produce a new shoot if they are damaged.


Hello, Does the foliage have specific autumn colour? Many thanks.


Hello there This plant isn't known for it's autumn foliage although it usually turns a pleasing yellow/ bronze colour, but really it is the red fruits that are the main attraction.

Hi there how large is this tree when delivered please? Many thanks, it looks gorgeous! I am new to gardening so hopefully it's a bit robust


Hello, This is a shrubby plant rather than a tree, so it should be around 30cm high in a 2-litre pots.
