Thundercloud Flowering Plum Tree - Highly fragrant flowers and dark purple leaves! (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall.)
To truly appreciate the benefits of a Thundercloud Flowering Plum, one must begin in the season of spring. The purple branches begin to swell with endless flower buds and when the sun warms the earth up just a bit more, the blossoms positively cascade down from the tops of the limbs as they open. These showy light-pink blossoms are among the most fragrant of any tree, and because the Thundercloud grows so quickly, the delicious fragrance produced by these blossoms spreads quite far in the wind. After the impressive display of flowers, sometime in the middle of spring, the bright purple leaves begin to shoot out and once the Thundercloud begins growing it takes off like a rocket. By summertime, your Thundercloud tree will be glowing with extremely colorful and dense purple foliage and will produce a considerable amount of shade quickly because it’s such a fast growing tree. The Thundercloud tree is a beautiful, aromatic, fast-growing tree that is suitable for all purposes in your landscape!
