Corithian Rose Flowering Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Corinthian Rose’)
Corithian Rose Flowering Peach Tree
Showy double blooms, the Corinthian Rose Flowering Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Corinthian Rose’) is an ornamental flowering version of the edible Peach tree! Featuring a unique upright skinny oval form for a punctuation mark in the landscape that looks fantastic in spring, summer, fall, and winter!
What is even more striking about this fruitless, flowering ornamental? The columnar form produces double bright-pink flowers that pollinators adore, as well as gorgeous purple foliage! Scented springs, unique form, and space-saving landscape décor rolled into one!
Corinthian Rose Peach trees are hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 8, and grow to a tidy 20-25 feet in height at maturity and only spread to 10-15 feet wide. Pollinators and hummingbirds seek out these rosy-pink blooms that look like gorgeous pompoms!
Corinthian Rose’s unique form and foliage lend themselves to the elegant framing of an entrance or driveway or even the start of a path to your backyard! Columnar flowering trees are space-saving focal points, wonderful screening plants, and backdrops for a mixed shrub border
Flowering Peach trees dress up a seating area in your backyard while lightly screening off your entertaining areas from the neighbors. Small-sized landscapes and established gardens can all accommodate a few of these trees! These even work fantastically as street trees and for anchoring the corner of your home’s foundation planting!
Flowering Peaches need full sun and well-drained soils best. Any enriched type of soil is best and these trees appreciate a 3-4 inch layer of arborist mulch to hold in moisture and insulate the roots from heat and cold. Prune after bloom to control size or to keep an open canopy for these fairly fast-growing trees, but these trees need minimal pruning to maintain the interesting upright form!
