Description

The Purple Leaf Sand Cherry, also sometimes just called “purple sand cherry” is a very popular, fast-growing, beautiful shrub/tree that has gorgeous dark purple foilage during nearly the entire growing season! In the spring it also puts on a show of beautiful light pink-tinted blooms that are lovely to look at. The Purple Leaf Sand Cherry, which has the official science name of "Prunus × Cistena" is a quick-growing shrub that is easy for everyone to grow, even if you do not have a green thumb! The purple leaf sand cherry can be grown as a shrub or it can be trained to be a small tree, depending on how you choose to trim it as it grows. They get similar colors to the dark purple Japanese maple trees. This is a very hardy (down to zone 3) plant that is very popular and looks good nearly anywhere you choose to plant it. The purple leaf sand cherry makes an excellent background tree/shrub or looks great as a stand-alone specimen. It can be planted close to paved surfaces and near utility lines and can also be used as a deciduous hedge. The purple leaf sand cherry prefers to be grown in moist, but well-drained soils. It likes to grow in full sun but can tolerate partial shade.

Gotta love purple leaf sand cherries!!!!

I have loved these purple sand cherries for a very long time. Although I hear they can be short lived of like 20 years or so, who cares, I can plant another one when that time comes! These things grow so darn fast anyway. Happy with our purchase
