Prunus Krauter Vesuvious

Call us at (925) 516-1052 to check availability

An upright-growing and colorful feature tree blanketed in a cloud of pink flowers in spring, rich deep purple foliage all season long; tends to grow more upright than other selections, best used as a solitary front yard accent or in street plantings.

Ornamental Features:

Prunus Krauter Vesuvious is covered in stunning clusters of fragrant pink flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves. It has attractive deep purple foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves are ornamentally significant and turn an outstanding burgundy in the fall. The fruits are purple drupes displayed in mid summer. The smooth brick red bark is not particularly outstanding.
