Product Details

Do you love the dramatic hello spring awe of a flowering cherry or pear, but don't have the space for a tree?  The Pink Flowering Almond has all the impact of flowering tree and only takes up a fraction of the space!  This dwarf shrub is a must have!

Sitting on your porch on a crisp spring morning enjoying your cup of coffee you watch as your landscape begins to come alive.  Butterflies are dancing around the soft, feminine blooms emerging from your Pink Flowering Almond.  Spring has sprung and it is more wonderful than ever with a wave of double, lacy, pink blossoms right there for your viewing pleasure.

The branching form of this shrub is unique and beautiful.  Many branches grow out the base of the plant, growing up and out similar to a crape myrtle.  This natural shape adds drama and a look that keeps this plant interesting even during winter's dormancy.

Plant in full to part sun for exemplary blooming.  This plant is hardy and adaptable.  Flowering Almonds are deer, drought, and pollution tolerant.

The Pink Flowering Almond is lovely as a specimen or focal shrub for a small yard.  Add to a mixed bed for a touch of romance and femininity.  Planted in mass groupings or a hedge will provide a beautiful blanket of soft, frilly pink that will transform your landscape.  Looks amazing on a patio in a container!

Don't wait another second!  Treat yourself to a touch of beauty with the Dwarf Pink Flowering Almond!

How To Care for your new Dwarf Pink Flowering Almond

Plant in full to part sun for ideal flowering.  The Flowering Almond is adaptable to just about any soil as long as it drains well.  While this shrub is drought tolerant it will do best in soil that is not completely dry.  Be sure to water deeply twice a week while your new plant is establishing its roots.  Mulching will help protect the roots and keep the soil moist.  Keep the mulch a couple inches from the plant to avoid problems with pests and disease.  Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer yearly when this shrub begins to come out of dormancy.  While there is no pruning requirement for a flowering almond, pruning may be necessary to keep a preferred shape or size.  Prune after flowering for best results. 

 

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.
