Are you in the market for an outstanding accent plant to use as a focal point in your landscape? "Ornamental" is certainly the perfect word for the Purpleleaf Sand Cherry (Prunus x cisterna). This is one of the very best selections for foliage, flowers, and bird-watching.

People love using this ornamental shrub near an entrance way to welcome guests. It has such a wonderful look, it helps spark conversation right off the bat. This shrub is pretty in every season, including winter, thanks to its graceful branch structure.

Right from the first foliage that forms in the early spring, the three-inch leaves feature a reddish-purple coloring, and they'll maintain that strong color in your yard throughout the summer months. Even young bark has purplish color.

Beautiful, small white flowers with a strong pink influence will emerge in the spring, softening the bright effect of the early foliage. This plant is a member of the Rose family, and the overall look of the flowers is really pretty.

As fall comes on, you'll see the leaves transition to a red-bronze hue before they drop from the plant. What a show!

Purpleleaf Sand Cherry it a wonderful plant for birds. You probably won't notice the small, dark purple cherries forming in early fall, but the birds certainly will.

The birds love to feast on these tiny cherries. You'll feel a sense of pride that you gave our feathered friends a helping hand to prepare for winter, as the summer season begins to draw to a close.

The Purpleleaf Sand Cherry is a dense-growing shrub that reaches an impressive size for a shrub if allowed to grow naturally. However, you can easily prune it to stay within a desired size.

It's versatile and can be trained into either a single stem small tree form, or used as a natural shrub with lower branches. Either way, this is a highly ornamental plant that is worthy of an esteemed location in your landscape.
