The American Plum is a deciduous tree capable of reaching heights and spreads up to 25’ forming a rounded crown. As a shrub, it suckers freely and can form large colonies. The American Plum’s 2 to 5 inch white flower pods appear in early spring before the foliage appears. Flowers are followed by edible, round, red plums with bright yellow pulp which ripen in early-mid summer. The American Plum is very adaptable to a wide variety of environmental conditions, including soils that are rich, average, poor, or rocky, and of acidic, neutral, or alkaline pH. This species likes moist, well-drained soils and can tolerate drier soils. The American Plum tree is also important to songbirds and animals for nesting, loafing, and as a bedding area. The twigs and foliage are also browsed by deer, not to mention the delicious fruits that are loved by many forest animals and humans too.
