Nigra has deep, rich purple foliage and single, pale pink flowers opening from darker pink buds before the leaves. This is a very beautiful medium-sized, round-headed deciduous tree and is one of the first to flower in early spring.
The right tree in the right place can transform a garden whether formal or natural. There are many reasons to grow trees in our gardens but mainly it is for their ornamental value, flowers, berries or autumn colour. Even when leafless in winter they still have their own beauty and form.
Care should be taken to choose a tree that is suitable for the space you have available. Look at the eventual height and spread of the chosen specimen. Delivery from November- early April.
Age of tree at despatch: 2
Height at full growth: 12m/40ft
Most of our trees are delivered as bare rooted specimens with approximate height of: 3.5ft - 5ft / 105cm - 140cm depending on the variety.
In order to ensure a good pollination pick fruit trees from within the same or from adjacent flowering groups.
The vast majority of the trees we ship have been pruned and will appear trimmed.
