Flowering Almond Hedge
Small, manageable shrub

Flowering shrubs add a burst of color to gardens and landscapes--and the Flowering Almond Hedge is one of the showiest, small shrubs for early spring color. This deciduous shrub's double pink flowers attract butterflies, and are sometimes followed by dark red fruit. Growing 4-5 ft. tall with a 3-4 ft. spread, this small shrub works well when planted in groups or as a hedge. It can even be planted in a container. Once established, the Flowering Almond Hedge will tolerate some drought conditions. It does, however, require good soil drainage. For best results, plant in full sun to partial shade. Zones 4-8.
