Chickasaw plum (Prunus angustifolia) creates a diverse benefit to any habitat. This native tree produces abundant fruit, flower and cover that is attractive to many walks of wildlife. Chickasaw plum attracts pollinator species by producing fragrant white flowers in early spring. These flowers add to the pollination health of local habitat, as well as create a natural beauty for your enjoyment. This tree is one of the first fruit to appear in summer which attracts wildlife from the local habitat. Chickasaw suckers to create thickets that wildlife use for bedding and cover.
Deer, turkey, song birds, rabbits and many other species thrive in the native environment created by Chickasaw plum. Cold hardy to USDA plant zone 5-9.
