American Plum - Prunus americana
This fast-growing shrub suckers freely to create thickets and screens. The one outside our office window fills with pretty reddish-purple plums in late summer. Great for jams and jellies and a popular lunchtime snack here. Excellent snow-white spring blossoms in April-May. Fall color is maroon-red. An excellent plant for naturalizing.
Mature size: 15 - 20' high, 10 - 15' wide
