Plant a Purple Leaf Plum tree when you want to add an eye-pleasing splash of beauty to any landscape! Also known by its botanical name, Prunus cerasifera, it features vibrant deep purple leaves that add a stunning look to any area, no matter where you choose to plant it. We love to plant a pair and use them to flank gateways or driveway entries or use some in an orchard-like row to block out unwanted views in style! In early spring, it produces beautiful puffy pink and white blossoms that you have to see to believe. Landscapers and homeowners in Houston will love this tree both for its visual interest as well as its abundant display of springtime flowers. This showy tree will attract birds and butterflies too, especially when in bloom. Purple Leaf Plum's are a small to medium sized tree that is sure to add curb appeal!

Purple Leaf Plum is easy to maintain with very little pruning required and the ones we sell produce no fruit, so it is a very low-litter producing tree! It is an ideal shade tree for patios or your special backyard seating area. It grows at a medium rate, so if you are looking for a bigger tree, visit one of our huge Big Tex Tree Nurseries, and our nursery pros will be glad to help you select one that fits your landscaping needs.

These beautiful trees add distinctive color and contrast well with other trees and plants in Houston landscapes. Purple Leaf Plum trees love full sun exposure and require little to moderate water use once established. Our Big Tex professional planting and delivery service will get any sized order planted into your landscape and treated with specialized fertilizers that get your plants growing just right!
