Elegant Lady Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Elegant Lady’)

Elegant Lady Peach Tree

Well-behaved and impeccably bred, the Elegant Lady Peach Tree (Prunus persica ‘Elegant Lady’) has a flavor that can be described as just that – elegant! Sublimely sweet and slightly acidic for the perfect balance, this bright red blushed fruit has a firm yellow interior that’s super juicy! Plus you can grow them in colder growing zones than you’d expect to find a Peach tree!

Peach Trees begin the growing season with a flourish of gorgeous pink blossoms that are fragrant and showy! The billowing petals are a major draw for pollinators that flock to your tree and help with pollination! The rest of the year will delight you with long, wavy green leaves that fill out your entire tree and provide dappled shade!

Elegant Lady Peaches ripen about mid-season, just in time for late summer BBQs and back-to-school lunchboxes. These are firm and sweet with the right balance of acids for a wide variety of kitchen uses from canning to grilling, pies and freezing for ice cream!

Planting and Application:

Peach Trees are gorgeous landscaping trees that serve double-duty in the garden and orchard! As if healthy, homegrown goodness isn’t enough, the fragrant flowers, lovely branching, welcome shade and juicy fuzzy gems add their own elegance to both front and back yard plantings!

Elegant Lady shades seating areas and garden beds, or anchors front landscape plantings. Soften a corner of a structure while causing traffic to slow down when it’s in bloom, and when it’s dripping in fuzzy, mouth-watering fruit! Offering some fall color as well, these are all-around fantastic trees for any place in the garden! Keep them pruned as small as you want for easy harvesting and convenient placement!
