American Plum
Rosaceae Prunus americana  
​​American plum , also referred to as " Wild Plum" grows as a large shrub or small tree, reaching up to 24 feet. It is adapted to coarse and medium textured soils. This native shrub is winter-hardy, but has no or little tolerance to shade. Stunning, fragrant white blooms cover the large shrub in mid spring and fruit/seed period begins in summer.  The tree has a broad crown and the edible, globular fruits are about 1 inch in diameter. Farms use this shrub or tree for windbreaks, and highway or riverside plantings. Its high density of growth effectively reduces the wind velocity near the ground. Development of suckers from the root system makes American plum effective in stabilizing stream banks and gullies. It will tolerate several days of flooding. Some commercial properties plant the trees along the entrance road. In wild life, songbirds, gamebirds and other animals use this tree for nesting, loafing, and bedding. Many birds and animals eat the fruitfeed on twigs and leaves. Contemporary human use of American plum is culinary and ornamental. The white flowers are decorative in spring. More
than 200 forms of American plum have been grown for cultivation. The sour and sweet fruit is eaten fresh and is processed as preserves, jellies, jam and wine.
