Beach Plum Tree


Beach plum (Prunus maritima) is a deciduous shrub belonging to the Rosaceae family. Clusters of white flowers bloom April-May, before the leaves emerge, providing an early nectar source for native bees and pollinators. Edible fruits ripen to a dark purple in September and are valued by wildlife as a food source. The berries are used to eat fresh and to make jellies and jams.
