22 May Prunus x Elvins Plum
DESCRIPTION: A stunning flowering plum with a profusion of light to mid pink flowers which completely smother the branches in spring.
USES: An ideal small specimen tree where space is restricted, or plant en masse for stunning effect.
POSITION: Prefers a sunny position in well drained soil.
CARE: Water after planting until established. Light pruning after flowering will enhance plant shape. Keep moist in warm weather.
PLANTING: Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground.
