Steppe almond, or low almond, or kaarlik almond, or Bean (Latin: Prunus tenella) is a shrub plant of the Rosaceae family, a species of the Almond subgenus (Amygdalus) of the Plum genus (Prunus). Unlike its close relative, the common almond, it has fruit that is not suitable for consumption. Only the oil obtained from its seeds can be added to the food. It is a deciduous shrub, reaching 150 cm in height.
Steppe almond is a sprawling one-and-a-half-meter shrub with dark green oblong leaves. The plant is thermophilic, and in a warm climate it blooms quite early (end of January), in a moderate temperature regime the flowers appear later (end of April).
The flowers have a rich pink color and a delicate aroma. The fruits of the steppe almond bean ripen in September, and look like a shaggy base with an edible stone inside.
The optimal time for planting steppe almonds will be late autumn (but before the onset of cold weather) or mid-spring, when the temperature regime is fully established, and the degrees in the soil are stable at 12-15. Such a plant will begin to bear fruit by autumn.
Steppe almonds are often used as a decorative addition in landscape design. But it is not recommended to plant it with taller plants. However, "little sakura" will beautifully complement the overall picture of a flower bed or shrub decorations. Thanks to the early flowering, almonds have time to manifest themselves in full force and allow other plants to show themselves.
Distribution of nuts in the wild - Western Europe and the southern part of the east, the Crimea, the Caucasus, Altai and Central Asia. It prefers steppe slopes, forest edges, rocky gorges, gullies, ravines. It often forms thickets, but can also grow singly.
