This plant should be pre-booked by July 1 for spring shipping weeks 1-14 and January 1 for holiday shipping weeks 30-36.


Gorgeous, rich, plummy-red violet leaves fill out this plant, top to bottom. This is the largest of the three in the GARDEN ANGEL™ Series and a garden star for sure. Each shrub-like plant has many stems and is husky and self-supporting. It'll reach about 24″ tall and wide the first year you plant it. 'Garden Angel Plum' is outstanding as a solitary plant in the garden or container and a great foil for silver foliaged ferns.
