Prunus hybrid 'Accolade'

PRUNUS

This rich genus includes everything from English laurel to flowering apricots, cherries, peaches, and plums. (For edible varieties, see individual listings for apricot, cherry, peach, plum, and plum hybridss.)

Ornamental species and forms can be divided into two categories: evergreen and deciduous. Evergreen types are used chiefly as hedges, screens, shade trees, street trees. Deciduous flowering trees and shrubs, closely related to the fruit trees mentioned above, are valued for their winter or spring floral display as well as for attractive shape and for foliage form, texture, and sometimes even fall color. Many of these deciduous kinds offer a bonus of edible fruit.

Prunus hybrid 'Accolade'

Hybrid between P. sargentii and P. X subhirtella. This vigorous, small tree has spreading branches and twiggy growth pattern, eventually reaching 25 ft. high and wide. In early spring, it produces a profusion of semidouble, blush pink, 1 1/2 in. flowers in large, drooping clusters. They open from rose pink buds.
