    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

Add an explosion of color to your landscape

The Krauter Vesuvius Plum, or the ‘KV Plum’, is quickly growing in popularity because it has multiple seasons of head turning color to stand out as the prettiest tree in the neighborhood, and they also produce tons of delicious cherry plums. 

In the spring, Krauter Vesuvius leaves emerge with a unique shade of dark purple that they keep all season, then hundreds of soft pink blossoms erupt all over the canopy to create a stunning display of contrasting colors. In the fall, bright red plums about the size of cherries brighten up the landscape even more. 

By only growing 15 to 20 feet, the Krauter Vesuvius Plum tree can fit anywhere, even in yards with limited space. Their perfectly oval shaped canopies add ornamental value to the landscape, and also provide shade to relax in. You can strategically place your plum trees by your drive way or home to keep certain areas cool during summer days with blistering heat. 

Krauter Vesuvius Plums are recommended for growing zones 4 through 9, meaning they will thrive during the extremely cold and snowy winters up north as well as the hot and dry climates down south.  

While being cold hardy and drought tolerant, this plum variety is most importantly smog and pollution tolerant. They are an excellent choice for large urban areas and will filter and clean toxins out of the air so you can breathe easy while enjoying the Krauter Vesuvius’s vivid color and irresistible cherry plums.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your 'KV' Flowering Plum Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your 'KV' Flowering Plum Tree 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 'KV' Flowering Plum Tree again after the transplant is complete.
