Chickasaw Plum

-

Native to much of the eastern US, these shrubby plums will, over time, form ever-expanding thickets of multiple stems arising from the spreading root system, providing valuable cover for a variety of wildlife. Once established, it is very drought tolerant. Masses of white flowers cover the canopy just before the leaves appear in spring. Deer will browse on the foliage throughout the season, and the early summer plums, about the size of a large grape, are highly relished. Naturally found on sandy, well-drained soil in full sun, it prefers acidic to neutral pH and not a good choice for alkaline conditions. This species is not reliably self-fertile so one or more individuals planted near each other will increase the chances of pollination and therefore fruit set.

To increase each plant's success rate, our plants are shipped in fully-rooted 5-gallon containers rather than bare-root or seedling. You don't have to plant them right away, but can instead wait for the ideal day.
