Low-Maintenance Option for Colorful Groupings

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 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!

Unfortunately the Deer like these too
They were shipped in great condition. They have been in the ground for a while now. However, we noticed right after we planted them that the deer were have a feast. We have since caged them in so if you have deer beware. Love the look of them though.

Happy with Purchase
Never used this co. before, but they had a nice selection of trees and bushed that I could not find in local nurseries, or were super expensive there. The three flowering almond plants arrived almost immediately, and were fresh and of good size. A month later they are doing well, and look good already in a grouping in my backyard. I look forward to flowers next year!

PLANTED IT THE DAY IT ARRIVED!
When planting plants that have been ordered online, my advice, as a Master Gardener, is to get it in the ground immediately. This flowering almond went into the ground the same day it arrived. It arrived in beautiful condition and is thriving.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Flowering Almond


Flowering Almond Planting Diretions

Almond trees are a delight to grow, because aside from growing a healthy and delicious snack, they beautify the landscape every spring when they erupt with hundreds of beautiful blooms. The flowers vary from soft pinks to white and pop against lush green foliage. 

Seasonal Information: Almond trees can be planted at any time of the year as long as your ground isn’t frozen. However, if you plant during a hot summer heat wave, be sure to give your trees enough water to help them become established. Generally the best planting times are in the fall, six weeks before the first frost to allow the roots time to become established before the winter. Or in the spring six weeks after the last frost, to give your tree time to transition into its new location before the heat of the summer sets in.

Location: Almond trees will do best if planted in an area where they receive full sunlight. Generally with almond trees, more sun equals more flowers. However, if your yard receives partial sunlight, that’s fine. Almond trees will grow in partial shade. Avoid planting your almond trees in areas of your yard that are prone to flooding or collect standing water.

Planting Directions:
1) When you have the perfect planting location scouted out, dig a hole that’s as deep as the root ball of your tree and twice as wide.
2) Take a shovel or pitch fork and loosen the soil around the sides of the hole. Once you have loosened the soil remove any debris like dirt clumps, rocks, and grass clumps from the hole.
3) Next, place your tree in the hole and make sure that the root collar is level with the surrounding ground, then slowly back fill the hole and gently tamp the soil down.
4) After the planting process is complete give your tree a long drink of water by holding a hose to its base and counting to 20 seconds.
5) Mulch around the base of the tree to conserve soil moisture and keep competing growth back.

Watering: How often you water your almond trees will depend on your climate. Almond trees like it when their soil is kept moist. Feel the soil once ever few days to determine if your tree needs more water or not. Once your soil feels like it is close to drying out, then it’s time to give it more water. Be careful not to over saturate the soil. Mulching will greatly reduce the amount of watering needed.

Fertilization: Almond trees will benefit from being fed fertilizer twice a year, once in the early spring and once in the early fall. Use an all-natural, organic fertilizer that’s well balanced like a 10-10-10 formula. Be sure to give your tree a thorough drink of water after fertilizing it so the water will carry nutrients down to your tree’s roots and to prevent nitrogen burn.

Weed Control: Keep weeds 3 to 4 feet away from the trunk of your tree. Weeds will compete with your tree for nutrients. The best way to get rid of a weed is by taking a firm grip on it in order to pull them out of the ground in a twisting motion. Applying a 3 to 4 inch thick layer of mulch to the base of your tree will prevent weeds from growing. 

Pruning: The best time to prune almond trees is in the late winter or early spring, while it’s still dormant. Remove any broken, damaged, or dead limbs. Also remove any branches that are touching or crossing, to prevent them from breaking on their own. When thinning out your tree be sure to study your tree and decide which limbs to remove before you start pruning. Branches that grow straight upwards are generally water sprouts, which are branches that don’t produce fruit. Use a sharp and clean pair of hand pruners or loppers that are sterile, and make your cuts at 45 degree angles facing upwards.

Pests and diseases: If you notice any discoloration of the bark, leaves, or almond hulls, remove them. These signs indicate that a fungus or mold could be growing. Often times removing infected areas of the tree helps to stop the spread of bacteria, but you should also spray your tree with an all-natural, organic fungicide to remove diseases and fungi like blight or shot hole.

We had this bush in our yard when I was a child. It was so pretty.
Frances C on May 12, 2017
Spotted this beautiful spring flowering bush in my neighbor's parkway--full sun, on the deer route that we both live on. I have wanted to have one of my own for a couple years, but can't find at local nurseries. Rhododendron and azaleas are out for us--too many deer. I am confident these will be great.

When to trim so you do not lose flowers in the spring?

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,
Does this produce edible almonds?
Debi W on Nov 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. It's glory is the bloom. When it blooms in full, there is no other plant or bush anywhere that is as beautiful. It is just stunning. But, the blooms are fairly short-lived and my bush doesn't always bloom in full.
What's the best time to plant This? I live in Sarasota.
Arceli D on Oct 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
Is the Flowering Almond Shrub deer resistant?
Larry P on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are rarely damaged by deer.
