Prunus virginiana 'Purple Jewel'

Form Branches Ascending
Mature Size 5 x 4m
Family Rosaceae
This is a hardy non-fruiting new selection with much larger leaves than others of the same cultivar. New green growth turns a deep wine red, with gorgeous, soft, blue-mauve undersides. Foliage colours will be more dynamic when grown in open, sunny positions. Holds its leaves until late Autumn.

This variety is great planted as a feature tree for foliage contrast.

This is an erect variety and needs to be tipped to encourage branching when young. Prefers full sun.
