Prunus glandulosa 'Sinensis'


Desirable and renowned mainly for its seemingly unannounced entrance of double bloom flowers from the cold, leafless seasons of winter, Dwarf Flowering Almond more formally called ‘Rosea Plena’ translates to ‘pink - double’ which is fitting given its profuse blooming character. Native to China, there exists several varieties each with their own attributes. This deciduous shrub can be grown successfully in the majority of the USA from zones 4-8 and is capable of being grown in a number of landscape applications which would best showcase its flowering nature. Reaching reasonable heights of around 5 ft and widths of 4 ft, it is more involved in terms of management requiring pruning and care to remove new shoots that may inhibit the growth of your shrub. It does best in full sun to partial shade which makes it suitable nearly everywhere in your garden. The promise of the fruits of your labor are sure to appease you when you see how the blooms overwhelm its branches every year bringing you lasting enjoyment to your home.
