Description

Prunus americana, commonly called the American plum, wild plum, or Marshall's large yellow sweet plum, is a species of Prunus native to North America from Saskatchewan and Idaho south to New Mexico and east to Québec, Maine and Florida.

Prunus americana has often been planted outside its native range.
The American plum grows as a large shrub or small tree, reaching up to 4.6 metres (15 feet. The shrub survives harsh winters, down to temperatures of -40 degrees F.

The American plum is used for both ornamental and culinary purposes. The white flowers are decorative in spring and its short, single leader makes it a popular residential landscape tree. Wild Plum fruit begins to ripen in late August, producing plums ranging in colour from yellow to red, but generally maturing to red.

The seeds are in very limited supply.

Type: Hardy tree

Location: Sun or part sun

Hardiness zones: 2-8

Seeds per pack: 3

Note: The seeds and leaves of prunus contain poisons. Do not eat them.

Germination: Start these seeds indoors right away for best germination rates. Soak the seeds for 12-24 hours before planting. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 60-90 days. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally 30-90 days after the warming period, though some can take longer. Do not discard the planting tray, as patience is needed, and they are well worth the wait.
