Flatwoods Plum

Prunus umbellata


Small tree with short trunk and broad, compact, flattened crown of slender branches; sometimes a thicket-forming shrub. The wild plums of this species are gathered for making jellies and jams. The scientific name describes the flower clusters, known as umbels, that are rounded, with equal stalks like an umbrella.


Spotted growing on historic old road near Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield
