When we were looking for this plum tree I went to several nurseries looking for the kind that grows wild along the roadsides.  All of them looked at me funny and couldn't figure out what I was talking about.  Finally I went to a nursery at the home of a lovely lady who knew a lot about plants.  She said "Oh, you mean the native plum" and got me one.  It's about 8 years old now, lovely and smells divine.  Diane

I miss the smell of the plum blossoms in the back yard of our homestead. Dad planted many fruit trees, and it smelled so heavenly in the spring. Thanks for the memories, Diane! So glad you found someone who knew just what you were talking about. It's beautiful!

These flowers also look very similar to our wild Siberian Tea bushes. I wonder if they are related.
Happy Spring to you Diane!!!
Hugs,

What a pretty little tree. It looks a little like our English Blackthorn or Sloe. Do you have it too? it grows wild in the hedgerows and comes out very early in the year, a froth of beautiful white blossom. Jane xx
