Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

The Morden Blush Rose has white flowers with shell pink overtones with a tea-like scent. The double-flowers bloom in spring and summer, emerging from distinctive pink buds. The foliage is dark green and glossy, turning yellow in the fall, with tomato-orange rose hips.

The Morden Blush Rose is popular for its cold-hardiness, and is also resistant to disease.
