Product details

Prunus cerasifera Crimson Point, known as the Crimson Point Purple Plum, is an upright version of Prunus cerasifera Nigra.

A great clone of Purple Leaf Plum for smaller gardens and restricted areas. The branches are stiffly ascending, resembling the habit of a Prunus amanagowa rather than its rounded parent. At maturity it broadens but still retains an oval habit with leaves that have more hints of red and dark green rather than solely purple.

Thriving on most free draining soils this tough tree is great for formal avenues or tree lined streets where little maintenance is required. Discovered amongst a batch of Prunus cerasifera seedlings in 1983 in the USA, it flowers well in the spring with a good covering of small white blooms that contrast well with emerging bronze foliage.

Mature height 3-7m

Mature spread: 2-4m
