Product Overview

Prunus americana

Before there were hybrids, there were wild plums. Normally they aren't as big and plump as hybrids, but they are still sought out because they are incredibly flavorful. These self-fruitful species have been used for centuries in wines and jellies as well as for fresh eating, and all thrive within USDA zones 4 to 9.

Other common names: American Plum, Native Plum, wild yellow plum, red plum. Mature Height: 20-30 ft. American plum grows as a large shrub or small tree. Soil / Climate: likes moist soils, The shrub is winter-hardy, but has little tolerance for shade, drought, or fire. Notes: white flowers in spring The roots are shallow, widely spread, and send up suckers. Development of suckers from the root system makes American plum effective in stabilizing stream banks and gullies. It will tolerate several days of flooding. The branches are thorny. The fruits are about 1 inch in diameter. The American plum is used for both ornamental and culinary purposes. Item # L1054-WP Shipping Size: 2-3 Feet
