Prunus mume,  Japanese Flowering Apricot

This small tree is the highlight of the winter season and can bloom from December until March. Often the tree will reach 25 feet tall and wide and it likes moist soil in sun to light shade. These are grown from rooted cuttings and we sometimes need to prune it to fit in the box (at 3.5'). We do have a few larger plants that can be picked up at the nursery. Zone 6  [25'T X 25'W]

These are best shipped when dormant, so they must be shipped before April 15th. No Prunus mume can be shipped to Oregon.
