Prunus Brilliant is an ornamental tree specimen with deciduous foliage and eye-catching flower blooms. Known as "alpine cherry", these trees develop fantastic rusty-bronze leaves at the beginning of spring, the foliage matures into a dark green before finishing off the year as a fiery orange/red. The flowers of this variety bloom from April until June and produce an abundance of attractive pinkish-white flowers. The flowers of this tree have to be sheltered from the wind. It is very hardy and does not require pruning. Any overextended shoots can be lightened to form a dense crown. Keep in mind that this plant only blooms on older wood.
Plant in well-drained, moist soils and position in a full sun or partially shaded area. Once planted, monitor the area around for any competing weeds. Once this plant is established, it will require only a small amount of care as they are extremely hardy, tolerating poor soils as well as drought and hot or cold conditions.
