  • Care guide

    Purple-leaved plum (Prunus pissardii) is a low-maintenance tree. It is frost-resistant and grows vigorously. It prefers direct sunlight (Its leaves will be red wine.)  but it can grow in half-shade (Leaves will be darker.). It tolerates most kinds of soil, provided they are not too limy, clayey or dry. We recommend planting it into substrates enriched with nutrients to achieve a more luscious, rich look. The tree can be trimmed. In that case it should be cut slightly in the spring as this will make the crown grow denser.

    It is ideal for gardens and landscaping projects. It is an attractive woody plant that should embellish every garden, alley, the edge of tree compositions, or it could stand out as an accent in private garden or parks.
