‘Rosea Plena’ Dwarf Flowering AlmondPrunus glandulosa 5-6' x 3-4' Abundant 1" pink double flowers late April.
This arresting little shrub caught my attention the first time I saw it against Carol and Rich’s beautiful old house. I was even more surprised when Carol said it was an almond! Well, here it is, a first for our catalog but apparently an old standard. Not particularly fetching past May, but it’s worth planting just for the early spring spectacle.
Branches are nearly covered with the impressive blooms ranging all shades of pink. Spreading suckering habit allows it to naturalize. Shiny bright green foliage. Prune after flowering for better blooms the following year. Rich loamy soil, full sun to partial shade. Native to China and Japan. Z4. (1-3' bare-root trees)
