The nectarine tree is the same as an apricot, plum, or almond tree and even the lovely rose! It is a decorative tree that blooms with light, medium, or dark pink flowers in the springtime. Fruits are decorative, delicious, and healthy to eat. The nectarine tree is also easy to grow!
A fast-growing ornamental beauty, the nectarine attracts hummingbirds in the spring with its pink flowers.
Originally from Asia, you may have seen them grown in English gardens, where it is popular pruned as a gorgeous fan or a blooming ladder against a south-facing wall.
Great for a small space, a showy hedge, or as an accent, the nectarine reaches 12-15 feet in mature height with an equal or greater spread. Even without pruning, the nectarine tree will assume a tidy, mounded shape.
This tree loves a well-drained soil and full sun. In the warmer parts of zones 5-9, our nectarine trees will produce fruit within one year!
