Wandering through Habig’s nursery, I found these beautiful plum colored bushes. I had no idea what they were, but we bought several to place around the rim of our deck.

We protected them from rabbits when they were small and moved them once when we extended our deck. I never thought they would survive, but they have.

Not only have they survived, but these lovely plum bush plants have thrived. They bring a rich purple contrast to all the green bushes and grass, and in the spring, there are these pretty white and red blossoms.
