Pink Flowering Almond FAQ

When Should This Tree Be Pruned?

Pruning is not recommended for ornamental cherry trees, but, if needed, prune in winter or early spring to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.

How To Plant A Pink Flowering Almond

Plant in hole twice as deep as the rootball and the same width. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for about 3 months while your new tree is establishing. Backfill the soil and add a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the tree. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease.

What Are Good Companion Plants For This Flowering Almond Shrub?

Hydrangea, viburnum and weigela pair well with this shrub as border plants in the landscape.

Caring for Pink Flowering Almond
Plant in full to part sun for ideal flowering. The Flowering Almond is adaptable to just about any soil as long as it drains well. While this shrub is drought tolerant it will do best in soil that is not completely dry. Be sure to water deeply twice a week while your new plant is establishing its roots. Mulching will help protect the roots and keep the soil moist. Keep the mulch a couple inches from the plant to avoid problems with pests and disease. Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer yearly when this shrub begins to come out of dormancy. While there is no pruning requirement for a flowering almond, pruning may be necessary to keep a preferred shape or size. Prune after flowering for best results.
Landscape ideas
The Pink Flowering Almond is lovely as a specimen or focal shrub for a small yard. Add to a mixed bed for a touch of romance and femininity. Planted in mass groupings or a hedge will provide a beautiful blanket of soft, frilly pink that will transform your landscape. Looks amazing on a patio in a container!
