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.

Parkland Apple is an extremely hardy, medium sized apple tree The apples have excellent reviews, they are juicy, crisp, and slightly tart. Apples will be ready to harvest in July-August and will produce apples which are yellow and green with a red blush overlay.

Parkland Apple also makes for a nice accent tree with slightly scented, white flowers blooming in spring that will make a striking feature to any landscape. Ensure you have an additional apple or pear tree within 150 m (500’) to ensure cross pollination and fruit production occur.
