Green Leaf Patio Peach Tree
The white freestone fruit matures in early autumn.
Green Leaf is naturally dwarf, so it will never exceed its modest size (in large containers or the sunny border, it can reach 5 feet tall and 4 to 6 feet wide). Well-branched and dense, it is a handsome addition to any display.
In mid-spring, Green Leaf covers itself in double pink blooms, wonderfully fragrant and quite long-lastingl The blooms are stunning, and would be reason enough to find a place of honor for this shrub. But they are quickly followed by masses of tiny green fruit, which mature all summer and are finally ready for picking in early autumn in most climates.
Green Leaf sets white-fleshed, freestone peaches, with a nicely blushed skin. Best eaten fresh, they are tender, juicy, and simply delectable. Expect a good crop for many years to come!
And this peach is highly disease-resistant, making it very low maintenance and gorgeous from spring through fall. It stands up to heat, humidity, intense sunlight, and even drought very nicely. It is deciduous, so in winter it presents a bare silhouette. If you live north of its zone 5 hardiness range, be sure to bring it indoors or into a warmer location for winter.
For fragrance, beauty, and fruit, all right on the patio, porch, or balcony, Green Leaf is unbeatable! Add this shrub to your landscape this season. Zones 5-8.
