Plum-Ornamental 'Contender' - 5 Gal.


Prunus cistena 'Contender'

A very tolerant plant with intense purple-red foliage that shows stunningly throughout the summer. Small, single pink flowers line the branches before foliage flushes in late April and are very effective. Good plant for hedging, borders, or as an accent, it thrives in poor sandy soils.
