Prunus cerasifera 'Cripoizam'

Buy Crimson Pointe® Plum online. A highly innovative, tight columnar selection of Newport Plum. The branches are so strongly ascendant that they practically parallel the axis of the main trunk, resulting in a tight column which will top out at around 20' but with only a 4 to 5' spread. In addition to its very un-plum-like formal habit, its mature leaves are a deep merlot-burgundy color which contrasts nicely with the new growth that has an orange-bronze hue. This is certainly a unique combination of size, shape and color. Crimson Pointe® may be grown in a multistem fashion (with multiple heading cuts made during the growing season) as a replacement for that moth-eaton thing called Purple Sandcherry (P. x cistena). Another possibility is a single-trunked tree, ideal for street plantings. Hedging applications also come to mind. Cannot ship Plum Trees to California
