Crimson Pointe™ – Prunus x cerasifera ‘Cripoizam’ P.P. 19,564
A PERFECT FIT FOR TIGHT SPACES
Speaking at the Northern Plant Symposium, Sally Benson, Editor, American NURSERYman magazine, stated that one of the industry and consumer trends continues to be larger homes on smaller lots. Crimson Pointe™ upright flowering plum is the perfect tree for tight spaces.
This recent introductionis an upright flowering plum reaching 20 feet in height and approximately 5 to 6 foot in spread at maturity. Branches grow almost parallel to the main trunk. Its extremely columnar form enables it to fit perfectly in today’s limited space landscapes.
In addition, Crimson Pointe™ is a vigorous grower which is cold and heat tolerant making it a very durable tree while maintaining a well-groomed, polished form. Its growth habit is accentuated by rich merlot-burgundy foliage which combined with orange-bronze new growth creates a unique and colorful display.
Crimson Pointe can be grown in several forms; either branched close to the ground or limbed up for use as a street tree or with proper trimming when young, a multi-branched base can be established allowing it to be utilized as a shrub alternative to Prunus cistena. Crimson Pointe™ is hardy to U.S.D.A. Zone 4.
