Product Information

Originating from east Asia, Prunus Gladulosa Alba Plena (or the Chinese bush cherry, Chinese plum, or dwarf flowering almond) is a beautiful specimen tree that can be grown in almost any garden.

From late spring, voluminous clusters of blousy blooms smother the compact, upright branches in a truly unique display, before the petals fall to carpet the ground in a blanket of white.

The pompom-like flowers appear before the leaves and will attract early pollinators, such as butterflies and bees into the garden to make it a spring wildlife haven, then, as autumn progresses, the leaves transform to a rich orange red before falling in a fiery cascade.

Can be planted in garden borders or patio containers where it will thrive in sunny or partially shaded areas. Ideal too for training against a south-facing wall.

Supplied as an established plant in a 3L pot, ready for planting out, it is fully hardy to -20C and reaches an ultimate height of 1.5m.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Prunus glandulosa Alba Plena:

  • Grow in any soil in full sun or partial shade; flowers best when grown against a south-facing wall.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

 

Aftercare Advice for Prunus glandulosa Alba Plena:

  • Water throughout active growth until plants are fully established.
  • Apply a generous layer of mulch during the spring.


 

Pruning Advice for Prunus glandulosa Alba Plena:

  • In summer, remove old, dead or diseased wood to maintain shape.
