Gorgeous Colors For Every Yard, Spring Through Autumn!

The Thundercloud Plum is showy all year long. Without a doubt, the standout feature of this tree, sometimes called a Cherry Plum, is its breathtaking colors, different from any other tree in your garden.

Delicate white and pink flowers appear in spring. Sweet single pink and white flowers appear in early spring and blanket the stems of the Thundercloud Plum. Fragrant and irresistible to butterflies, your senses will be tantalized every single spring as you smell the flowers and watch butterflies dance around the delicate and showy blooms.

Ruby red leaves appear in the summer. Following the blankets of sweet flowers, the leaves of the Thundercloud appear in summer. When they first show up, they present a jaw dropping ruby red color. Typically reserved for autumn, you'll love the bold contrast this tree will make on your summer landscape.

And you get dazzling, deep-purple leaves in autumn. The stunning purple color is what really makes this tree so popular. Amongst the warm browns and oranges of fall, the Thundercloud in your yard will standout with cool, mesmerizing purple tones.

Sweet plums join the summer and autumn show. In late summer and early autumn, you might even see little, deep red cherry plums appear. Completely edible, and well loved by birds, you'll enjoy this edible ornamental whether you're picking a healthy treat from your tree or just watching the songbirds it attracts.

Perfect for small, city yards or big, country landscapes. The Thundercloud tolerates city pollution, and at a manageable 15-20 ft., it won't overpower urban landscapes. Even if you've got a large yard, scattering a few Thunderclouds throughout can offer vibrant pops of color amongst a sea of summer green.

Create a royal entrance to your driveway or sidewalk. Imagine how stunning your entryway would look flanked by two Thunderclouds draped in pink, ruby red and deep purple. You and your guests will feel like royalty every time you come home.

Plant it in the sunshine. The Thundercloud loves the sun, and thrives perfectly in climates with a warmer winter. By planting it in full sun, you'll get the deep purple colors that make this tree a favorite.

Everyone wants a showstopper like the Thundercloud in their yard. You're not the only one to fall in love with the way this tree looks. A perfect ornamental specimen with unique colors throughout the season, the Thundercloud is extremely popular. Order yours today before they're gone.

    Plum thundercloud

    We’ve had our tree for three years now and it’s grown into a beautiful attractive addition to our property. Though heavy rain and wind has caused some leaning. I was thinking of trying to train it if that’s a possibility?
