About This Product

Thundercloud Flowering Plum tree has purple branches that begin to swell with endless flower buds. The blossoms cascade down from the tops of the limbs as they open. These showy light-pink blossoms are among the most fragrant of any tree and because the Thundercloud grows so quickly, the delicious fragrance produced by these blossoms spreads quite far in the wind. After the impressive display of flowers, sometime in the middle of spring, the bright purple leaves begin to shoot out. By summertime, your Thundercloud tree will be glowing with extremely colorful and dense purple foliage and will produce a considerable amount of shade quickly because its such a fast growing tree. The Thundercloud tree is a beautiful, aromatic, fast-growing tree that is suitable for all purposes in your landscape.

    Slow moving Tree by Fedex.
    FedEx stated I would get 4 days earlier, but I Got my plum tree 6/19/23 and soaked in water for 3 hours before planting in a planter by 900pm. The root ball had 1 new root shooting out and no growth on tree. 6/28/23 See photo's the tree in the background was bought from Home Depot and is doing great. I can't wait until it gets bigger and see the leaves and flowers. I had one a year ago, but it died loved the color and plumbs we got. I have ordered approx. 8 trees/bushes in the past year from.

      one out of three appear to be dead
      Bought 3 and two started to sprout rather quickly. But the third one has no sprouts on it at all. Looks as though it’s dead.

        A most beautiful tree but with a caveat
        Beautiful shape, beautiful flowers, red leaves, the scent of the blossoms is like honeysuckle and can be picked up a block away. But understand this tree is very susceptible to black knot galls. I have two of them disfigured where the trunk branches out. I am hoping they survive despite it. But if you want to get ride of it it requires radical pruning below the first knot, and that would mean cutting it back to three ft tall.

              3 DEAD
              I have been gardening for our 3 apartment buildings for 20 years. Last September I bought 3 Flowering Plum trees from Home Depot/Online Orchards. I have successfully grown other bare root plants and also have experience planting larger, more established trees. But all 3 of these from Online Orchards/Home Depot did not have a large root system and was I concerned about that. Sure enough, no matter how much care I gave in the planting and protection over the winter, there has been no signs of life this spring. I am very disappointed and regret the loss of money.

                Good conditions - leaves throughout.
                Came in good condition, several feet tall. The root system was moist and packaged well. A number of leaves throughout. I soaked it and put it in soil, hopefully it will will continue to grow, but it definitely didn't come dead like some bare root tree reviews say.

                  Extending the Blair Legacy
                  I was very pleased with my purchase of the two flowering plum trees. The trees were purchased to plant in honor of my only Son - Blake, killed in a car accident on 09th July We lived together in my home and he loved to see me out in the yard; I feel most at peace. My goal is to place one in the front yard where he would park his car and the other close to his bedroom window where he'd like to look out into the backyard. I am pleased with my purchase and I plan to purchase from this orchard again.
