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.

Our Price: $30.00

(zone 6-9)-  The darkest colored flowering apricot that we have seen.  This is also reliably the earliest to bloom, often in full flower the first week of December.   It has dark red-pink double flowers and a sweet, cinnamon-like scent that will fill the air abundantly. Even the bark and roots have a red cast! The summer foliage is not as handsome as some other varieties as the leaves have a tendency to roll when stressed. Prunus mume will not be offered again due to difficulties with propagation and production. These are in 2 quart pots and are not straight or nicely shaped. [20'T 20'W]
