Dwarf Russian AlmondPrunus tenella
The dwarf Russian almond is a small, hardy shrub with dense, lustrous foliage and nice yellow-orange fall color. But its real claim to fame is the striking display of bountiful early spring flowers. Those rose-red blooms are true showstoppers.
Because of its seasonal beauty, compact size and adaptability to a variety of soils, this shrub is a great choice for any yard within hardiness zones 2–6.
