Product Description

Vibrant, Vivid Color Explosion

Get multiple seasons of head-turning color with our Krauter Vesuvius Flowering Plum Trees! In addition to stunning florals, they also produce tons of delicious cherry plums that brighten up your landscape even more.

And by growing to a manageable mature height, the Krauter Vesuvius Plum can fit anywhere, even in yards with limited space. Their oval-shaped canopies are perfect for gracing driveways, borders and beyond, adding shade to hot areas and color to bare corners.

Even better? The Krauter’s effortless care. The KV is cold hardy, drought tolerant, and pollution tolerant. That makes the Flowering Plum an excellent choice for large urban areas, or any location that experiences temperature extremes. And the best part is that, because we’ve planted and nurtured our Krauters from day one, you get a tree that’s ready to thrive from our nursery.

We’ve put in the extra work so that you reap the rewards of a well-developed root system and healthy branching. So, fresh color and easygoing benefits are just a click away. Get your KV Flowering Plum Tree today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Though a full sun location (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil are best, the KV will do well with some afternoon shade. When you’re ready to plant, dig a hole that’s twice the width of the tree’s root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. Finally, spread a 3-inch layer of organic mulch and repeat the mulching process each spring.

2. Watering: Provide adequate watering for the first couple of seasons to be sure the tree establishes itself properly. It will need to be watered weekly, or more often in the warmer season. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.

3. Pruning: KV Plums have a naturally rounded shape that will not require regular pruning, but an annual trimming of the branch tips during the winter season encourages best growth.

4. Fertilizing: Feed your tree in the spring with a general, all-purpose fertilizer, at some point before the new growth starts.
