The Purpleleaf Plum is sometimes referred to as the "poor man's Japanese maple' because of it's reddish-purple foliage. It produces masses of wonderful pink blooms in spring and also produces small edible fruits for wildlife. Can be used as a small shade tree or as additional summer color in a garden or against a light-colored wall. We plant this tree as an accent in sunny islands or beds. Fast growing and quite drought tolerant.
