The deep purple foliage of spring is darker than nearly everything else. It adds an element of drama to a landscape. And like all good dramas it changes, with some levity ushered in with the arrival of a pale pink blossom in late spring. This small deciduous tree is well suited to group plantings and avenue locations, eventually growing to 4 x 3 m.
Suitable for: Avenues, specimen and group planting.
Features: Deep purple foliage, one of the first trees to blossom early spring.
Botanical Name: PRUNUS cerasifera Thundercloud or ‘Nigra’
