An Interesting and Beautiful Accent Tree

The Purpleleaf Sandcherry - Tree Form is a deciduous tree, trained to grow in a small tree-like form with the primary plant grafted high atop a standard.

It makes a popular, colorful accent tree with a rounded habit. The Purpleleaf Sandcherry (Tree Form) is excellent for adding lasting color to a garden!

Displaying elegant purple-pink flowers in spring, it has burgundy/purple foliage all summer.
