The Purple Leaf Plum is a very vividly colored tree that attracts the eye in just about any landscape application. The deep purple leaves provide a wonderful color contrast to the greens and browns commonly seen in Houston landscapes and adds a much needed variety, while also providing the natural benefits of planting trees. The Purple Leaf Plum also has a bloom cycle where it produces luscious, puffy pink flowers known to attract birds while blooming.
A strictly ornamental tree, our Purple Leaf Plums produce no fruit, meaning a very low-litter producing tree, making life much easier for the typical landscaper. Purple Leaf Plums are a sturdy tree that grows well in Houston’s environment. A small to medium sized tree, Purple Leaf Plums can add intense color to just about anywhere in your landscape design.
