Cherry Plum Overview
Prunus cerasifera is a deciduous tree species from the Rosaceae family. It has an upright habit and forms a rounded shape with age. Flowers are small and white, they appear as the leaves unfurl in early spring. Leading onto edible yellow, orange or red plum-like fruits, these measure approximately 2.5cm in length. This species is part of the Royal Horticultural Society “Plants for Pollinators” initiative to showcase plants which support pollinator populations by providing ample amounts of nectar and/ or pollen. A great choice for encouraging pollinating insect wildlife into your garden!
