Prunus salicina x 'Weeping Santa Rosa'

A fantastic focal point in your edible landscape, the Weeping Santa Rosa has a beautiful draping habit, showy blossoms, and delicious fruit. Grows to 8'-10' tall and has attractive white blossoms in early spring. While it doesn't set large crops of fruit, Santa Rosa plums are a beautiful claret red, and intensely flavorful.

Requires only 200-400 chill hours to set fruit, and ripens 2-3 weeks later than standard Santa Rosa, so best suited for growers with long, hot summers. Shipped plants have been pruned to fit in the box; please support any emerging branch to become the new central leader, and tie that branch in an upright position to your tree support post that should be as tall as you want the tree to be at maturity. Once the central leader reaches the desired height, you can allow the branch to begin to weep; any other branches emerging at that height will weep as well. Prune off any lower weeping branches as needed. Patented by Floyd Zaiger.
