Botanical Name: Prunus cerasifera 'Krauter Vesuvius'
An upright-growing and colorful feature tree blanketed in a cloud of pink flowers in spring, rich deep purple foliage all season long; tends to grow more upright than other selections, best used as a solitary front yard accent or in street plantings
Krauter Vesuvius Plum will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 12 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 4 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.
This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. Consider applying a thick mulch around the root zone in both summer and winter to conserve soil moisture and protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
