Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

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.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Newport Flowering Plum can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Newport Flowering Plum


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

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.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Newport Flowering Plum 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 Newport Flowering Plum 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.

I order this plum tree mid-February along with some other fruit trees. The tree arrived without any damage, and was full of branches. My tree had been in the ground for about 2 1/2 weeks and already has about 2 dozen blooms and lots of leaves. It has been exciting to watch this tree thrive. Thanks for the great product!

By: Marc
What a great addition my back yard. This tree DOES NOT disappoint ! Within two weeks of planting, flowers appeared, and now the dark purple/burgundy leaves are absolutely breathtaking ! Thank you for a great tree !!

By: Kelly
Tree came nicely packaged and suffered no damage during shipping. Tree was approx. 6 feet tall and had lots of branches. The leaves were extremely insect damaged, which I was a bit disappointed about. With some TLC it grew over 4 feet the first season. It is a gorgeous colored tree

How tall does the Newport Flowering Plum tree get?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2014

Can this be planted in the same hole that a dead tree has been removed?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, it can. Just make sure that no disease existed in the old tree because you would not want to contaminate the new one. I suggest that you dig an exceptionally large hole - both wider and deeper than the directions so that the new tree is planted in exceptionally good soil. Use lots of compost and some slow release fertilizer such as Osmocote. For the first two years make sure it receives at least an inch of water every week. Remember, babies need special care to grow up strong . You will be greatly rewarded later on. My tree is beautiful and I am sure that yours will be as well.

how fast will this tree grow?
sarah p on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: I've had mine for almost 9 months and it's grown almost 2 feet. Bear in mind that I planted in October last year so it's only really been growing upwards since April (zone 7).

Is the height listed 5-6ft. from the ground up to top, or does it include the root ball?
A shopper on Jun 6, 2014
Best Answer: After planting my Newport Plum tree, it stood (and still stands) about 5 ft. Very fast growing! Starting to fill-out nicely! Remember to trim off suckers on the young trunk often as they absorb most of the water necessary for trees growth.

Best Answer: No, this tree does not bear fruit. My tree blooms beautiful pink flowers that attracts neighbors curiosity
