Listing for Prunus
An extensive genus, Prunus is considered to provide the most spectacular spring blossom and includes flowering almonds, flowering apricots, flowering cherries, flowering peaches, (Including dwarf peach and nectarine) and flowering plums. They have been selected specifically as flowering plants rather than any fruiting ability. Prunus are very hardy, adaptable and possibly the most popular deciduous trees grown in Australia. Flowers can be pink, white or mottled shades, single through to double and in a range of sizes. The often prolific flowering habit makes them excellent as small to medium sized specimen trees and their versatility ensures they can be used in a variety of applications. Prunus trees are ideal for small to medium gardens.
