Prunus Cerasifera Pissardi - 10L (Purple Leaved Cherry Plum)

This ornamental cherry plum has become one of the most popular trees on the market over the past few years for its deep burgundy leaves, almost no maintenance needed and no special soil requirements. It is very similar to the popular ‘cerasifera Nigra’ Prunus although its leaves allow a little more light to pass through creating an alluring purple glow in the sun.

The spectacular spring display of this cherry is a gorgeous eruption of pale white, beautifully symmetrical flowers with a deep raspberry center and a ripple of pink across the petals. The flowers pile high onto the stems, almost out of nowhere, and create a stunning combination with the purple leaves and antique bronze of the stems.

The Cerasifera Pissardi has a rounded form and it will grow to an estimated height and spread of 5 x 4 metres over the course of 15-20 years. This tree is tolerant of most positions and pollution; the purple leaved plum will do well almost anywhere. It really is a masterpiece of an ornamental tree for smaller spaces creating a wonderful foliage foil for other plants and a breathtaking spring display.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 8m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.
