OTHER: The Dwarf Almond, aka Russian Almond, is native to western Siberia, eastern Europe, & central Asia. This extremely cold-hardy beauty has become a very popular ornamental across the globe, especially in cooler climates. They bloom in early spring before the leaves appear, covering the shrub with masses of rosy red 1/2" fragrant flowers that really stand out in the landscape.
The Dwarf Almond can be planted solo or in groups, & can even be used as a groundcover when spaced close enough together. They are a very dense shrub so can act as a windbreak, & they also provide an excellent hide for birds, rabbits, & other little critters who will love to munch their nutty fruit later in the season. By mid to late summer, the flowers will have given way to the plant's hairy red fruit that measures about 3/4" long. In fall, the leaves turn lovely shades of yellow & orange.
These plants are tolerant of a wide variety of conditions such as sandy soil or heavy clays, drought & moist soils (but not standing water), high winds, & pollution, making it a good choice for urban settings or a 'street tee'. Because of their small stature & cold hardiness, they also make wonderful container plants. Dwarf Almonds are easy to grow, & will grow quickly at a rate of 1 - 2' a year.
