Lovely choice for smaller gardens, Prunus kurilensis 'Ruby' flowers early in the spring with a mass of soft pink flowers and is often multi-stemmed, forming more of an upright shrub than a tree with ntably pleated leaves.
Autumn foliage is a vivid mix of reds and oranges. Tolerates most planting conditions in full sun or light shade.
Prunus nipponica var.kurilensis 'Ruby' pretty much requires no pruning and is fully hardy and trouble-free. Final height will be in the region 1.5 to 3 metres.
