Prunus salicina

Zone: 3

Exposure: Full Sun

Mature Size:
16′ H X 13′ W

Bloom Time
: Early Spring

Description: A freestone plum with golden skin and yellow flesh; good for eating and preserving. Ripens early season making it a good choice for colder climates. Pollinate with Opata Plum, Pembina Plum or Western Sand Cherry.

Ornamental Features: Ripens to a rich gold colour mid-August, with juicy sweet flesh that has a yellow tone. Very tasty and mainly used off the tree. Plum flowers attract bees, which pollinate the flowers and ensure fruiting success.

Landscape Attributes: Is a deciduous tree with a more or less oval shape. Plums are hardy and adaptable, making them popular fruiting trees for the home landscape. Is best pruned in late winter.

(Trees, Shrubs and Perennials labelled Zone 2 or 3 are consistently hardy enough to survive in Calgary, Okotoks and surrounding areas)
