This tree has it all:
- Fruit! Sweet plums ripen for you to enjoy at the end of summer.
- Wildlife! Mexican Plum supports many species of butterflies and birds.
- Flowers! The tree canopy is covered in white blooms in the spring.
- Native! Takes full sun, is drought tolerant and freeze hardy.
Use Mexican Plum instead of crape myrtle for an accent tree. It only gets 20 feet tall with spreading branches and is perfect in smaller gardens. This tree grows quickly when watered consistently in the first year.
