Double Flowering Plum
Stunning Double Pink Blooms Cover its Branches!
A familiar sight across the northeast quarter of the U.S in May is the Double Flowering Plum, a cold-hardy shrub that puts on quite a show with its gorgeous double candy-pink flowers blanketing each branch with blooms.
It tends toward a round shape, is a robust grower and will withstand wind and cold winters well.
The foliage is more of a medium grass-green than dark green, and turns to an attractive yellow-bronze color in the fall.
The Double Flowering Plum can take a lot of abuse in terms of soil condition, but it does need good sun, good drainage and ample room to perform at its best.
It can also be pruned and trained into a tree form.
