Description

This large shrub to small tree grows close to 10 feet tall with full sun and well-drained, moderate soil moisture conditions. In March and April, it produces showy, fragrant, pink blossoms. These give way to orange, red, and yellow apricots that attract birds (and people). This is one of the hardiest and earliest of the Prunus to flower in Chicago-area gardens.
