Crimson Pointe is a purple-leaved blossom tree, which grows in a strongly columnar form, making it ideal for smaller gardens or for street planting.
The simple white blossom appears quite early in the spring. The tree sometimes produces a crop of small plums.
However the main attraction is the columnar shape and rich bronze leaf colour, which gives the tree a useful structural role in a garden or street planting. The foliage is far more dense than some other columnar flowering cherries such as Prunus Amanagawa.
Crimson Pointe can be considered as a columnar alternative to the well-known purple-leaved flowering plum, Prunus Nigra - to which it is closely related.
