-- -- --
A deciduous shrub that grows to 3-6 ft., with rose flowers emerging in the spring. Native to east slope Sierra Nevada up into Nevada. This Prunus species likes sun, dry conditions, and good drainage. It makes a beautiful flower show. I've seen many photos of this taken by people who had no idea what it was. A decent wildlife plant. Water it for the first summer and then ignore. If you live in the lower desert you'll probably need to give it a little more water. (But not much!) Plants growing nearby, in full sun, are Grayia spinosa, Artemisia tridentata, and Elymus cinereus. In arroyo area of joshua tree woodland, plants occurring nearby are Forestiera neomexicana, Encelia actoni, Haplopappus linearifolius, Atriplex canescens, and Cucurbita foetidissima, and Chaenactis sp.

Prunus andersonii's foliage type is deciduous.
Prunus andersonii's flower color is pink.
