Peggy Clark Flowering Apricot | Prunus Mume - Myro 29C [SPRING]
A flowering Apricot selected for its beauty. It also produces edible fruit. Enjoy bright beautiful fully double rose pink flowers that have a distinctive fragrance and make wonderful cut flowers when there is nothing else to cut from the garden.
The tree flowers in the winter in January or February. The flower petals can be dried to make a delicious tea. If flowers are not frosted, the tree produces fruit. The fruits, though not very sweet or pleasant on their own, are useful in preserves.
While green they can be either sugared or pickled or, when ripe, used to make apricot brandy or jam. Allow a 15 foot spacing for this long-lived tree. Select another variety for pollination if you want fruit.
