Be ready for a breath taking explosion of light-pink flowers when your Pink Flowering Almond blooms! Petite, ruffled double-pink blooms cover each and every branch in early spring. 

You will be delighted by the charm and simplistic form of your almond shrub, one of the most richly colored and prettiest flowering shrubs you can plant. 

Because of their small size, they’re perfect as a focal point along a pathway, in groupings or even in containers. They only grow up to 4-5 ft. tall, so you can plant them almost anywhere. 

It provides plenty of springtime blooms without taking up too much room, so it works very well for anyone with space issues. You can easily keep it dense and compact, or to your desired height. 

The small green leaves that smother the shrub throughout the summer turn to a vibrant yellow shade in the fall... giving you color throughout the seasons. 

These are tough plants... they can tolerate urban conditions like poor soil, drought and smog. It is very easy to care for. The Pink Flowering Almond is extremely adaptable to various soil and moisture conditions. 

Its the perfect flowering shrub for border or foundation plantings, though it can work well as a small showpiece plant as well. You can expect the bright show of blooms in late April or May; plant in partial to full sun for optimal blooms!

It's Easy to Plant your Flowering Almond

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Flowering Almond.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Flowering Almond gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Flowering Almond again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

It loves the sun in our yard!
First, I planted it in partial shade in a front garden beside the house. It wasn't happy there and struggled. I transplanted it to a back garden in full sun and it is thriving!

Flowering almond
I ordered three bushes. They are all doing well with a lot of new growth. I can't wait to see them flower in the spring! I just ordered another as a gift to my Mom. The plants were well packaged and took right off.

I loved the first one I had. The sight of all that pinky beauty was my Good morning for three years. Unfortunately a yard man cut it back and it died. I can't wait to get my new one.

i trimmed it in the spring and should I trim it again in the fall?
A shopper on Sep 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Flowering almond is pruned right after flowering. Pruning at this time gives it the rest of the growing season to produce new greenery. If you pruned earlier you could risk cutting off the buds and miss out on the flowers. Most say that if your shrub blooms after June 15th, you should prune early early spring, but if you bloom before June 15th, then prune it right after it finishes all its blooming,
When to trim so you do not lose flowers in the spring?
A shopper on Jun 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: haven't trimmed it yet! hasn't grown too much yet.
is it to late to plant a weeping almond,its 95 here,and it gets hotter in july,should i wait till fall ?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It will be a very small tree coming from this nursery. I would wait til fall to plant to give it the best chance for survival. Plant in a small container you can move around to keep it protected from the sun.

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
