Prunus americana – American Plum


One 5-gallon pot curbside at McKay Nursery in Oregon, WI.

Plant height: 15′-20′

Out of stock


Lovely, fragrant flowers in the spring, juicy ripe plums in the summer and yellow to electric red fall foliage; what’s not to love about this native plum species? The plums are yellow-red and edible (great for baking pies and making jelly). Like all native species, this is a wonderful addition to any garden for native fauna. This multi-stemmed shrub is 15-20′ wide and tall at maturity.
