Thundercloud Flowering Plum Tree
Thundercloud Plum (P. cerasifera 'Thundercloud') is easily the most popular purple leafed plum in America, and justly so. Originated in 1919 by Luther Burbank, it blooms with fragrant pale pink spring flowers, followed by bright red foliage, which turns darker as the season progresses. It will grow to about 25' tall and wide. While ornamental, Thundercloud may set a crop of small edible plums which are dark red both inside and out. It does best in full sun in a good garden soil.
