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!

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.
Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Flowering Almond.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
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.
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.
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.
