Add to Wish List
A spectacular, deciduous tree, with dark purple, oval leaves. Masses of bowl-shaped, pale pink/white flowers smother its bare branches in early to mid-spring and are occasionally followed by plum-like red or yellow fruits. 'Nigra' is a superb medium-sized tree that is easy to grow and will not reach the height of a single-stemmed form making it better-suited for smaller gardens.

Pots and Packaging
Larger pots (2L and above) are wrapped in waxed paper and then attached to a cardboard base so they stay stable in the box. The waxed paper prevents the compost from spilling out and gives the base some added protection from damp compost. For large numbers of plants, pallets may be used for shipping.

The nursery will ensure the plant is moist while it's waiting to be picked up. Our quality control team waters the plant before packing them where necessary to make sure that the plant is suitably watered for transport. Plants with long delicate stems are secured with canes to prevent damage.

Plant on Arrival
Typically plants are delivered ready to plant and will take some time to settle, grow and look more like the product image above.

How your order will arrive
When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Lightly prune in summer to retain the shape and cut back any dead, diseased or crossing branches.
