Valuable Small Native Tree

Doing your part to protect our environment and feed wild songbirds? Looking for native plants to beautify your yard? Or do you simply want a sturdy, ornamental tree that stays pretty throughout the year? 

The easy care Chickasaw Plum tree (Prunus angustifolia) is a wonderful option for you to consider. You can decide to grow this as a multi-stemmed shrub or prune it up into a small tree with a short trunk. Either way, you'll adore the beautiful, fragrant white flowers that appear along the stems in March before the foliage emerges.

What a nice way to welcome spring to your yard!

Plant this one by a window where you'll be able to see the progress from a comfy seat inside. If you have a kitchen window, give yourself a fabulous view of the wonder of nature by siting this tree outside.

You'll love watching how the flowers are followed by small, cherry-like, red to yellow plums which ripen in early to mid summer. Native Americans regularly consumed the fruit fresh or dried it for winter. They also make delicious wine, preserves and jellies. 

Have you heard about the new trend for Thanksgiving? People are "wildcrafting" native plant foods into their Holiday meal. Try a prepared jelly with your dinner rolls. Ask your family to give thanks for modern inventions like grocery stores! 

The flowering Chickasaw Plum is a true ornamental with pretty textured bark and a pleasing branch structure. You'll appreciate seeing more nesting birds and butterflies visit your yard. 

Also known as a Sand Plum, Sandhill Plum and Mountain Cherry, this is a versatile plant. Use it as the edge of your property and let it naturalize into a wildlife sanctuary for ground-nesting birds like quail or turkey. Or, keep it manicured by pruning it up into a lovely, low tree
