Prunus x blireiana
|Plum, Apricot, Nectarine, Peach, Cherry, and Almond trees are all part of this tasty group. Not only can you eat the fruits of the several deciduous varieties, but most of the trees in this group offer a spectacular show of spring hues. With their attractive foliage and bark, some look good year-round. Deciduous trees and shrubs named "Flowering" are ornamental only. Use the non-fruiting evergreen types as hedges, screens or shade and street trees. Most will not tolerate waterlogged soil, heat, or dryness. Prone to several pests and diseases, so keep them healthy and vigorous. Spray to control pests and diseases when needed. Prune after flowering to shape and remove diseased and dead branches. Transplant in spring.
Love spring blossoms, but not the summer crop? Try this small tree or shrub -- it bears little or no fruit. Fragrant, bright rose flowers grace the nodding branchlets. Young leaves unfurl a bronzy red, then mature to green.
