American plum, also called wild plum in North America creates thickets and hedgerows of amazing smelling flowers and delicious fruit. This plum sends up suckers and will slowly spread from its original home unless managed. Fruit is small compared to other plums with tough skin, and very delicious flesh. The American  plum is disease resistant and can withstand browse pressure as it matures due to its spiky branches. Its a pollinator for other plums and a solid rootstock for other members of the prunus genus. Fruit can be preserved through vinegar, wine, jelly and fruit leather. Maybe some of its best use can for be for wildlife support as it is well liked by many bird species and provides great habitat for them as well.
