Beautiful Flowers add Color to Your Landscape
Purple Foliage Adds Contrast
Plum-purple leaves make this tree a winner if you're looking to add a surprising blast of color that defies the norm in the summer months. The Newport Flowering Plum comes alive in the spring with sweet, delicate light pink flowers. It's the perfect set-up for what's to follow...bronze colored leaves that darken to a deep purple as the temperatures rise throughout the summer months.
Low Maintenance/Cold Hardy
Climate is not an issue for the Newport. It's one of the hardiest and most reliable purple-leaf plums. Extreme climate conditions are no problem. This Plum is adaptable to various soil types and will thrive in full sun from Zones 4-10.
No Limits on Location
The Newport Flowering Plum looks amazing when planted as a centerpiece in a garden or flower bed, but this tree requires no accompanying plants, bushes or shrubs to make a statement. While it is quite impressive in any setting, it can stand it's own as an ornamental, growing in an attractive round form, reaching up to 30 feet tall and 25 feet wide. There are no limits to where you plant it. It does well in the middle of your yard, on the corner of your landscape, and for extra special spark - purchase a few and line them in a row to create a spectacular border.
This is a very popular tree and unfortunately, we run out of stock often. That's because we nurture them at our nursery, and although we have 42+ acres, there is only so much space to dedicate to each of our products. We do the work here so that when they're delivered to you, they are ready to thrive. If you have any reservations about the health of our trees that we ship, scroll down to see what our customers have to say. We're very proud of our ability to deliver strong trees that you can plant upon delivery!

- plum color
The plant arrived quickly as stated it had a handful of flowers really love the plum color it will stand out from the greens and yellow trees already here.. this tree is doing real well in it's forever home very healthy and tall great job.....
The little tree is doing fine. Shedding it's leaves now and getting ready for winter- hunker down. I saw it last Sunday. It was a gift to my son so it is special.
Perfectly beautiful tree
So far so good! I received a healthy sturdy 4-foot tree four weeks ago. I planted it the same day. It didn't go into shock; the foliage hasn't faded; nor has it dropped a single leaf. In fact it appears to have grown 4 inches. ( I haven't measured it). Can wait to see it mature!

Package arrived in great shape did not have any damage to Tree it is starting to show new grows after three weeks in the ground.
More than was shown or promised in the ad. Run don't walk to order one
The couple of extra dollars that it cost for the oversize shipping was well worth it. I was afraid of damage since I had to leave it in the shipping box for almost 48 hours before planting BUT all I can say is WOW. This tree is not only lovely but is almost growing before my eyes. I came clearly trimmed for shipping and with a few leaves. Since planting it has grown almost 3 inches and filled out fully with lovely leaves. If you are not sure of using this company think again what they delivered is far better than I expected! Thank you for a tree that is going to be the talk of the neighborhood in a couple of years
