Description
Prunus x cistena forms an upright, bushy, slow growing shrub which also makes a good low maintenance, deciduous hedge. Alternatively, grow as a specimen shrub in a container on the patio or as a focal point in the garden. Its single, pale pink, fragrant flowers appear in spring, after the young leaves have appeared. The colourful foliage of this Purple-leaf Sand Cherry is red whilst young, turning a more intense red-purple through the summer months and becoming more bronzed in autumn. Occasionally a few cherry sized, blackish-purple fruits are produced in July, which can be difficult to see as hidden by the red-purple leaves. Height and spread: 1.5m (5').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant in any well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole.
More Info
Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water during particularly dry periods.
