Plum, Chickasaw (Prunus angustifolia)

Full sun. Zones 5-10.


Prefers sandy soil, but will grow in any well-drained soil.


This Southeastern native will form clumps or colonies 15-20 feet tall by 20 feet wide. Trees tend to be broad spreading and can be pruned to a single stem. Native from Maryland south to Florida and then west to Texas. Has cleaner foliage than American plum.


An excellent wildlife shelterbelt plant or shrub border companion. Also nice as a specimen tree.


Chickasaw plum’s white spring flowers produce sweet, tangy, juicy, cherry-sized red to yellow fruit in early to mid summer that is good for fresh eating or for making memorable wild plum preserves.


Out of stock until fall 2016
