Double Flowering Plum
One of the showiest of all garden shrubs when in bloom, this tall spreading shrub becomes a uniformly frothy cloud of double pink flowers in early spring; bears no fruit, makes a wonderful specimen or garden shrub; needs full sun and well-drained soil.
Double Flowering Plum is smothered in stunning fragrant pink flowers along the branches in early spring, which emerge from distinctive rose flower buds before the leaves. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The serrated lobed leaves turn orange in fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
Double Flowering Plum is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
