Plum, Chickasaw 1-0 (Prunus angustifolia)
Chickasaw Plum is a shrub or small tree reaching up to 20 feet tall and 20 feet wide in an irregular crown shape. In full sun it will spread shoots to form dense cover that is important songbird nesting and cover for other wildlife. In early to mid-spring small white blossoms with orange anthers will appear. In late summer bright red 1 to 1½ inch plums will provide excellent food for wildlife. Fruit can be processed as preserves and jellies. Chickasaw Plum requires minimal amounts of water to grow.
