The Q&A Archives: Prunus cerasifera 'Krauter's Vesuvius'

Question: re Prunus cerasifera 'Krauter's Vesuvius': Will it tolerate some shade and some acidity? I want to plant in an area that is near a pine tree that sheds a fair amount of needles at certain times of the year and creates some afternoon shade.
thank you.

Answer: Prunus cerasifera 'Krauter's Vesuvius' will adapt to any soil type and grows best in full sunshine. It will tolerate a few hours of afternoon sunshine. If the site is too shady, growth will be rank and foliage will be small. If this occurs, you'll want to move it to a sunnier spot.
