Beach Plum

Beach Plum

Prunus maritima 6' x 5-6' Rounded dense suckering shrub found along ocean beaches, New Brunswick to the Carolinas.

In spring beautiful showy white blooms cover the dark branches. Purplish-red ½-1" fruit in late summer. Excellent jams, sauces and especially jelly.

Although typically found growing naturally in poor sandy soils, the plants thrive in well-drained fertile soils with a pH of 6-6.5. Additional fertilization will further increase productivity. We suggest an annual 5-gallon bucket or two of compost per plant. Prune to maintain an open center for good light penetration.

Plant about 5' apart. Pollination requirements are uncertain—we recommend planting at least two for good fruiting. Salt tolerant! Native to eastern U.S. Z3. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root plants)
