This small tree grows between 10 and 20 feet in height, it is ideal for small gardens and courtyard areas. They prefer full sun and regular watering, but it is a deeply rooted tree and can tolerate some drought. Prunus x domestica (Plum) produces many beautiful and fragrant pink, white and off-white flowers in the blooming season and edible, though somewhat tart, fruit. The foliage is also ornate with a combination of dark-green and silvery-gray. It grows best in USDA Zones 4-9.

Each fruit measures up to 1-2 inches in diameter and can come in a variety of varieties from white to yellow, depending on the type. You can eat the fresh fruit straight from the tree, cook it or use it to make juice, jam, jellies and wine. Rich in antioxidants, plums are a great source of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
