Looking for an eye-catching, flowering shrub to add some color to your garden? Look no further than Prunus triloba, also known as flowering almond or flowering plum. Originally from China, this hardy plant is popular around the world as an ornamental. Its pale pink or white flowers bloom in early spring, followed by red, "pubescent" fruit. For optimal growth, plant in well-drained, moisture-retentive loamy soil, with some lime present. While the plant is hardy, it benefits from being grown against a sunny wall to protect the flowers. You can also find the double flowered form, P. triloba 'Multiplex', with double pink flowers. Add some color to your garden with Prunus triloba today!
