Easy to Grow Ornamental Tree with Unique Color

The Newport Plum is an ornamental tree with unique color. It would make a brilliant addition anywhere in your landscape to offset the usual greens of the summer months.

Imagine having a tree in your yard that maintains a deep, rich purple shade all summer long. Your eye can't help but be drawn to such color when it's displayed amid the common summer hues.

In addition to the uncommon color of the foliage, your Newport Plum will grace you with a lovely spring display. Earlier than most trees, the Newport Plum leaps into spring with a copious bloom of delicate pink flowers. Those flowers will be a delight to your nose as well as your eye with their delicious sweet scent.

When the flowers are spent, a 1-inch purple fruit will develop which is a large draw for the wildlife in your area. In fact, even without the fruit, your plum tree is known for being beloved by a variety of birds as a nesting site.

The Newport Plum forms a dense rounded canopy, which would be a pleasing silhouette for your landscape. It's a hardy tree requiring little maintenance and not bothered by deer.

A Newport Plum is an excellent choice for almost any landscape. It will delight you with its spring display, draw wildlife to your yard and its unique foliage will stand out in your landscape all summer long.
