    In early spring the flowering almond's branches are densely lined with delicate pink blossoms that brighten the landscape. A cold hardy deciduous shrub from China, it attains a rounded mature shape with many vertical and twiggy branches. The single pink flowers open all along the young twigs in early spring, and are sometimes nipped by frosts. Pollinated by bees, the blooms are followed by small red fruits in summer. Leaves emerge just after flowering, becoming mid- to dark green, and are broadly oval with toothed edges, sometimes bearing up to three lobes. Their undersides are a lighter green and hairy. Fall leaf color is typically yellow and gold.

    Plant flowering almond in full sun to ensure best form, growth and spring flowering. It is best grown in average, fertile soil with no high extremes in pH. Very pretty as an informal hedge or screen, it can be limbed up to form a small tree in a mixed border or as a foundation plant. Since flowering occurs on the previous year's twigs, pruning the shrub after flowering encourages an abundance of branches that will be loaded with blossoms next spring. This plant is terrific to force into bloom in the house during the dreariness of winter. Unfortunately, many pests and diseases can afflict this shrub, however, pruning out diseased and dead wood regularly helps to minimize these problems.
