This ornamental Bonfire Peach tree offers a striking, dynamic color appeal to your yard or patio!
The Bonfire Peach averages around 6 feet tall at mature height. 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 summer foliage continues to offer a unique and colorful appeal. 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 Peach’s fruits are generally unsavory eaten fresh (although birds love them!). But they can be used in pies, canning, or pickling. 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 dwarf fruit tree is high quality and can even be container grown. The Bonfire patio peach tree is a great option for those without yards to plant it in.
Grow this outstanding flowering peach tree across the United States in USDA plant hardiness zones 5-9. This 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.
