The Thundercloud Purple Leaved Plum Tree is a stunning landscape specimen. Its coppery purple foliage holds its color well into fall. Pale pink, flowers blanket the branches in the spring before the foliage emerges.
This flowering tree is a strong accent in any landscape or garden, so it is best used as a focal point in a front lawn. Since they can grow up to 20 feet in height and width, they will also make stunning backdrops in full sun gardens, providing shade to smaller plants below while basking in the sunlight. Full sun is important for these beauties, as that is what will bring out their strongest coppery purple color. The contrast between the pale pink flowers and the deep purple leaves is a beautiful sight in the springtime.
