Flowering Cherry Plum

Prunus blireana
6-8m exceptionally to 10m.* A slightly larger ornamental plum tree with prolific double pink blossoms in spring.

Purple Leaved Cherry Plum

Prunus cerasifera ‘nigra’
6-7m exceptionally to 8m.* Probably the finest of all purple leafed foliage trees grown in Australia. Single light dainty pink blossoms on fine branches throughout spring. Its rich dark plum foliage never loses its colour and can be used as for striking contrasting effects. Though not generally thought of as a fruit tree Its cherry-plum fruit can be eaten. One of the toughest plums and handles somewhat drier and warmer condition. Suits as a small garden specimen.

Dwarf Flowering Plum

Prunus cerasifera ‘Elvins’
3m x3m.*A dwarf flowering plum suitable for the smallest of spaces with prolific flower’s completely covering the semi pendulous branches in mid spring.

Purple Plum Tall / Slender

Prunus cerasifera. Var
6 x 2 m. * A very upright form of ornamental plum with a tall and slender habit perfect for those tight spaces. Lovely deep burgundy foliage and white spring flowers make this tree distinctive most of the year.
