Dwarf Flowering Peach

Prunus persica 'Bonfire'

SKU
07030
A highly ornamental dwarf peach. Double pink-red flowers arrive in very early spring, and dramatic, deep red leaves create a canopy of gracefully drooping foliage that holds its color well. Tiny ornamental fruits may appear, often hidden by the dense foliage that this shrub is prized for. Excellent landscape or container accent. Deciduous.
