This species is a thicket forming native plum of the Mid-West that prefers dry sunny locations. The fruit is sweet and makes great jelly or just fresh delicious eating. It is a favorite food of deer and bears when it ripens in May. The plums are yellow and sometimes red. It is very easy to grow and does well on poor soils. This plum was heavily planted around the ancient towns by the Native Americans. A perfect harvesting shrub because it only grows to 5-6'High x 10'Wide. Flowers hundreds of beautiful white flowers in mid-march thur Early April in zone 7.
We will have more of this lovely native plum in the fall. :)
