Let’s say you have this spot next to your house that could use… something. It’s too tall an area for your typical bush or shrub, but too narrow for a tree. You have windows looking out onto this little bit of narrows and it feels…. unfinished. Sounds like a perfect spot for a Columnar Plum.
Columnar indicates the growth pattern of the tree; very upright with minimal horizontal growth. In the case of this plum the height is around 20 feet, with a width of 5 to 6 feet. There is a bonus with this tree, in fact there are two. Light pink flowers in the spring, and dark burgundy leaves throughout the summer.
If you have that sunny skinny spot that needs something give it something different; give it a tree that won’t become what trees typically become. Give it a tree with a leaf color not typical among trees. And throw in some light pink flowers ta boot.
