Prunus x blireana is a small, robust, vase-shaped, ornamental cherry tree with slender, slightly arching branches and dark green leaves, reddish-purple when young. Slightly fragrant, double, mauve-pink flowers that appear with the leaves and bloom abundantly in early spring. Prunus x blireana is a cross between the Japanese apricot (Prunus mume) and the Purple-leaved plum (Prunus cerasifera ‘Pissardii’). It is sterile, therefore does not produce fruit. It grows best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil, but is adaptable to other types of soils. It thrives in full sun. It is resistant to frost, but late winter frosts may damage the flower buds. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require much pruning. Tolerant of urban conditions. Blireana Plum is an attractive, very decorative cherry tree with wonderful flowers and good autumn foliage. It is perfect as a specimen plant or planted in groups. Great for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Excellent for planting along driveways and avenues. Suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
