The Thundercloud Purple Leaf Plum tree is the perfect tree to bring vibrant deep purple-red foliage into your garden, on a small tree that will grow almost anywhere. Planted against a backdrop of green trees, this beautiful tree really makes a bold statement, and its leaves stay vibrant right into fall. Other varieties of purple Leaf plum can fade over summer, especially in hot areas, but not this one. It was found exactly because it didn’t fade, and it won’t. Plant a pair on either side of the entrance to your property, or a row along your driveway. Use it as a striking property boundary, or a specimen in your lawn. Don’t forget the delicate shell-pink blossoms either, that brighten up the days of early spring, and bring a whole second benefit to growing this tree.

  • The best of the purple Leaf plums
  • Rich coppery purple-red through summer into fall
  • Delicate shell-pink flowers in early spring
  • Ideal specimen tree for a lawn, or as an avenue
  • Grows well even in hot states

Plant the Thundercloud Purple Leaf Plum in a sunny spot, as shade can cause the leaves to green and reduce flowering. It will grow from zone 5 to 9, and in any well-drained soil. This beautiful tree can be left to develop naturally, or trimmed for shorter, denser growth. Prune only in spring and early summer, to reduce the risk of disease. Fertilize each spring to develop vigorous, disease and pest-free growth, as weak trees are prone to infections.
