This new garden peach tree really has it all, giving interest from early spring through to autumn and with the promise of a crop of juicy peaches!
In early spring the blossom appears and the bright pink saucer shaped blooms which are produced in abundance give a display every bit as good as the best ornamental cherries! It also acts as a magnet for bees and other friendly insects and beneficial pollinators.
As the blossom fades the foliage appears - each elongated slender leaf taking on a bronzy hue as it unfolds offering a lovely contrast to the more familair greens in the garden.
Over the summer the fruits enlarge and ripen til they're ready to pick in late August. Peaches are deep red when ripe and with sweet yellow flesh.
For best results grow in a large pot in a sunny spot in the garden - it's ideal spot perhaps being against a south facing wall.
Whilst Rubira is fully hardy in the UK climate i'ts best protected from rain during the winter months as this helps avoid leaf diseases. If possible move under cover such as a porch or better still a greenhouse. Alternative cover with a tent fashioned from garden polythene.
This spectaular tree with delicious fruit is worth the effort!
