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 4-9.

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!

    Not what I was expecting

    The tree shipped in a very thin box and because of that the tree had very few branches. A lot of ppl made fun of my new tree. I called customer service and they were great which is why I’m giving this review a 4 out of 5. To be honest, I don’t think I will buy a tree online again.

    Newport Flowering Plum

    Lost all of its leaves when we got it. We have been watering it daily and it looks like new leaves are starting to grow. Trying to get it through this terrible heat
