This compact grower is perfect for those small spaces that could use a focal point. A dense tree with a neat, upright crown, ‘Gladiator’ welcomes spring with a profusion of rosy-pink blooms. Glossy foliage has a bronze-purple tinge all summer and good disease resistance. Late summer brings a show of small, reddish-purple fruits. Due to the narrow habit of this tree, it can be used as an alternative to hedges in sunny locations.
