How to Use Hollywood Plum in the Landscape
These upright trees are beautiful “edible ornamentals.” You can add them to your front yard or patio landscaping as a fantastic specimen in a mulched bed.
Add them to a hedge row with other Japanese Plums to create a bounty for you and your family. Eat these sweet treats right from your tree.
For high density planting, use a 5 – 10 feet on center planting pattern. Measure from the trunk of one to the trunk of the next. Look for our blogs and videos on summer pruning for size control!
Hollywood ripens early, and hangs for a long time on the tree. How nice to enjoy such a convenient harvest!
This is a good variety for canning. You’ll love recapturing the taste of summer, even as the snow flies in winter. Try your hand at making flavorful jellies, too.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Plum trees require full sun with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. They also prefer well-drained soil that has been amended with compost.
Elevate your planting if you have poorly drained soil. Bring in additional soil 12 to 18 inches above the soil line by three feet wide. Plant in that mound, or add side walls to create a border on a raised bed.
While young, give the tree an even amount of moderate water. Once it’s established in your soil, it is largely drought tolerant. Mulch your tree to 3 to 4 inches deep to 3 feet outside of the canopy.
Plums should be pruned in a vase shape. Pick three main scaffold limbs to encourage a full, upright shape. If you want to keep this tree smaller, summer prune ? of the season’s growth during the growing season.
