A hardy spring-blooming shrub, flowering almond (Prunus triloba) is a reliable performer that is smothered in double bright pink blooms every year. It’s much more cold tolerant than flowering cherry, so it’s a good substitute where winter temperatures go below freezing. This shrub is also a good companion for late-spring flowering bulbs, such as tulips and daffodils. Like most spring-blooming shrubs, flowering almond should be pruned right after the flowers fade in late spring. A light pruning often helps promote better flowering the following year.
