Prunus maritima (beach plum)


Beach plums get me excited. They are edible, deer, rabbit, salt, wind, drought and just about anything resistant. They offer year round interest, AND they are a keystone species supporting over 400 species of moths and butterflies, all the while being beneficial and attracting native bees and birds! Plant this shrub in sand, or maybe just about anywhere with some sun!
