The Russian Almond is a compact, spreading, showy shrub with beautiful deep pink flowers. Usher in spring with the fragrant flowers that bloom and smother the branches before the green foliage. The narrow leaves turn yellow in the fall. This hardy shrub is perfect in urban areas as it is highly tolerant of city pollution.
