Flatwoods Plum

Prunus umbellata

Description:

I caught this tree blooming last year (2013) but there was no fruit when I went back later in the season. This year (2014) I noticed that many of the pistils are twisted like corkscrews; I don't know if this is normal for this plant or if its buds may have been damaged by late ice storms in February.

Habitat:

Spotted growing on historic old road near Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield
