Prunus cerasifera 'Krauter Vesuvius', commonly known as Purple Leaf Plum, is a deciduous ornamental tree. It is prized for its showy, deep purple foliage that emerges in early spring and lasts through summer. In the fall, the leaves turn bronze or burgundy before dropping.

This tree grows to a height of 20-25 feet and a spread of 15-20 feet. It has a rounded, dense growth habit and a moderate growth rate. It produces small pink flowers in early spring, but they are not particularly showy.

The 'Krauter Vesuvius' cultivar is a popular selection of the Purple Leaf Plum. It has a more upright growth habit than other varieties, which can make it a good choice for small gardens or narrow spaces. It also tends to be more disease-resistant than other Purple Leaf Plum cultivars.

When purchasing a Purple Leaf Plum, it is important to choose a healthy specimen with a well-developed root system. A 2.5"-3" B&B (balled and burlapped) tree is a good size for planting, but be sure to follow proper planting and care instructions to ensure the tree's long-term health and success.
