Prunus triloba sometimes called "flowering almond" is a shrubby cherry, sometimes becoming a small tree. The flowers are pale pink or white , and the fruit are red and "pubescent", i.e. with soft hair. It originates from China.
Thrives in a well-drained moisture-retentive loamy soil. Prefers some lime in the soil but is likely to become chlorotic if too much lime is present. Succeeds in sun or partial shade though it fruits better when growing in a sunny position. Any pruning is best done soon after the plant has flowered, to within 4 - 5 buds of the previous years wood.
