Planting  

Because of the vibrant flowers that bloom in Summer, make sure that this tree gets planted in a location where everyone will be able to view it. Planting it is like nearly every other tree and make sure you add tree stakes because this will protect it during its early years. Make sure that it receives an adequate amount of water  

Care

The Purple Leaf Plum is an easy tree to care for. We recommend that during winter the tree receives a thinning, as it keeps things more orderly through the years. Remove the tree stakes once the tree is established and move the emitters away from the base a couple feet. This will force the roots to grow out and away from the trunk, which will help with strength and drought tolerance. One yearly fertilization in the summer would never hurt either.  

Varieties 

While there are a couple varieties, whatever they’re selling at the nursery will be great. 

Invasive
