This ornamental Bonfire Peach tree offers a striking, dynamic color appeal to your yard or patio!
The Bonfire Patio Peach tree averages around 6 feet tall at mature height and full size. This makes it the perfect eye-level garden accent whether planted or potted. The early spring delicate buds quickly fill the flowering tree’s branches with showy bright pink double blooms with deep pink centers.
After this head-turning blooming season, the red foliage continues to offer a unique and colorful appeal even during summer with its dark red leaves. The new branches and their long, tapered leaves emerge dark red, maturing into a deep burgundy of gracefully drooping foliage. Autumn continues to offer a colorful display as the leaves become gold-tinged.
The Bonfire Patio Peach fruits are generally unsavory eaten fresh (although birds love them!). But they can be used in pies, canning, or pickling when home grown. This ornamental peach tree is still loved for its gorgeous colors and double flowering white pink red blossoms.
The pink flowers of this prunus persica produce fruit in as little as 2 years. This semi dwarf fruit tree is high quality and can even be container grown. The Bonfire patio peach tree edible is a great option for those without yards to plant it in.
Bonfire Patio Peach Tree Care
Grow this outstanding flowering peach tree across the United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 5-9. This variety of peach fruit tree prefers full sun and well draining soil. It can tolerate sandy soil sites. Will benefit from a slow release fertilizer once a year at the top of the root ball.
Dig a hole the size of the nursery container the orders ship in. Be sure not to clip back any roots unless they are tangled. Your peach tree will want room for the roots to grow. Choose a planting spot or a container with plenty of room.
If you are keeping your prunus persica bonfire tree in a container, be sure to choose a pot with drainage holes for best results. It is a self fertile peach variety but having another peach tree around can improve cross pollination.
These dwarf peach trees do not ship bare root. They are rooted in a nursery container in soil.
