Propagating wild plums

greginnd(Z4 ND)August 26, 2012

I have a plum tree that I want to propagate. It has small fruits that turn yellow then red and the a bit darker when over ripe. I presume it is an American plum or similar wild plum species but I'm not sure. I would like to propagate this tree. It is a single tree and I don't see that it grows any suckers. Is it possible to root cuttings? What is the best way to go about this?

Sounds like American, you can try, if you have low branches then layering might work. A sure thing would be grafting to another rootstock.
