RUSSIAN FLOWERING ALMOND     Prunus tenella

The Russian Flowering Almond is a great filler in places where its suckering habit is not objectionable. It is one of the very first plants to flower in the spring--just as the leaves a starting to develop.

Flowering Shrub: Height 1m (3ft). Forms a dense thicket which is not at all aggressive.

Foliage: Linear green leaves.

Flowers: Very profuse, deep pink flowers are born early in the spring.

Fruit: Almond shaped seed with a hairy husk.

Fall Colour: Copper.

Comments: Drought resistant. Frequently does well where other plants have failed.
