How to Use Hollywood Plum in the Landscape

These upright trees are beautiful "edible ornamentals." You can add them to your front yard or patio landscaping as a fantastic specimen in a mulched bed.

Add them to a hedge row with other Japanese Plums to create a bounty for you and your family. Eat these sweet treats right from your tree.

For high density planting, use a 5 - 10 feet on center planting pattern. Measure from the trunk of one to the trunk of the next. Look for our blogs and videos on summer pruning for size control!

Hollywood ripens early, and hangs for a long time on the tree. How nice to enjoy such a convenient harvest!

This is a good variety for canning. You'll love recapturing the taste of summer, even as the snow flies in winter. Try your hand at making flavorful jellies, too.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plum trees require full sun with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. They also prefer well-drained soil that has been amended with compost.

Elevate your planting if you have poorly drained soil. Bring in additional soil 12 to 18 inches above the soil line by three feet wide. Plant in that mound, or add side walls to create a border on a raised bed.

While young, give the tree an even amount of moderate water. Once it's established in your soil, it is largely drought tolerant. Mulch your tree to 3 to 4 inches deep to 3 feet outside of the canopy.

Plums should be pruned in a vase shape. Pick three main scaffold limbs to encourage a full, upright shape. If you want to keep this tree smaller, summer prune of the season's growth during the growing season.

Plum Tree Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for Hollywood Plum Trees to bear fruit?

Nature Hills Nursery sells fruit trees with mature root systems that are already three to four years old, so you’ll enjoy fruit sooner than you would with younger trees! Expect young Plum trees to begin fruiting usually by the 2nd to 4th year after they establish in your landscape.

How big do Hollywood Plum trees grow? How fast do Plum trees grow?

The Hollywood Plum tree can grow to a mature height of 10-15 feet and a mature width of 10-15 feet. 

Once your Plum tree has been established (after the first year), it can typically add 13-24 inches of new growth per growing season. If your plants are growing less than that in a season, it may be worth your while to check the fertility level.

Where is the best place to plant a Hollywood Plum Trees?

Plum trees grow best in well-drained, fertile soil in at least 6 hours of full sun per day or more. Provide good air circulation and moderate, yet consistent water in well-drained, fertile soil.

Do You Need 2 Plum Trees to Produce Fruit?

The Hollywood Plum trees are self fertile, so planting more than one Plum tree that blooms at about the same time, boosts yields on both trees and extends your harvest time! 

No room? Look into High-Density Planting techniques, or choose a semi-dwarf or dwarf fruit tree.

When Should Hollywood Plum Tree be Planted?

Bareroot Plum trees can be planted in spring when they are available in your area. Container-grown Plum trees can be very successfully transplanted all throughout the growing season. Check for first and last frost dates for your area with your local County Extension Office.

  • Plant bareroot Plum trees in the early spring.
  • Plant container-grown trees anytime the ground is not frozen by digging a hole as deep as the soil line and twice as wide.
