Cherry-Plum Seeds, Myrobalan
Prunus myrobalan. Zones 4-7. Tall shrub.
This awesome, robust, multi-functional tree is a favourite of us permaculture geeks! Early blooms feed a plethora of beneficial insects and can improve pollination of other plum trees in the surrounding area. These blossoms transform into lovely, small cherry-sized plums. Fruit is great for preserves but also for eating fresh.
Myrobalan Cherry Plum is widely used for root stock; expand your plum orchard by grafting onto this quick growing, hardy tree! This semi-wild plant grows to 20 feet and works well in a hedge, or standing alone. Myrobalan welcomes so many birds; they love it for shelter and food!
This is a great food and habitat shrub, ideal for permaculture design.
