American Plum is a broad, and spreading deciduous tree that has showy white flowers in the spring. It can also be used as a shrub and can form large colonies. The white flowers are fragrant and attract birds and other wildlife. Once these flowers have dropped they produce a small 1″ red plum, that can be eaten raw, but are even better as a jam or preserve. American Plums are fairly adaptable, being tolerant of drought and dry soil. In the landscape it can be used as a specimen tree, for its flowering and fall color.
