Gladiator™ is an excellent ornamental tree with a profusion of bright pink flowers followed by small reddish-purple fruit on a stately, upright crown. Glossy bronze-purple leaves are darker and glossier than Purple Prince, remain lush all season long and are highly disease resistant. Gladiator is an ideal ornamental tree for space-challenged sites including under power lines, as a small boulevard tree or planted in a row for a screen. This is an open pollinated selection of 'Royalty'. Selected by Rick Durand, from Portage la Prairie MB, CA. (®CA)
