SHIPS MID MARCH THROUGH END OF APRIL
Native to eastern coastal United States, this cultivar is also known as a Beach Plum. Although it grows naturally along the beach, it can be grown almost anywhere. Reaching a mature height of 6 feet, this plant is covered with small white fragrant flowers in spring. Purplish-black to red fruit ripens late August to September. Great for jams and jellies. This sand dune species needs well drained soil and full sun for best production. Zone 3-8.
Best location is in full sun with well drained soil. Dig your hole twice as wide and as deep as the root ball. Cover roots with loosened top soil mixed with well aged compost. Keep well watered until tree is established. Mulch to retain moisture and control weeds. Try planting on cloudy days. Soak roots before placing in prepared hole. This will help limit the stress placed on your new plant.
