Muckle Plum

Posted by ziggro (My Page) on

This is an interesting ornamental landscaping tree that I understand is used in Canada, but rare here in the U.S..
A zone 2 hardy small tree covered with rose-colored blooms in the spring and foliage that turns to orange-red in the fall. Anyone have any experience with this plant? Also, does anyone know a source I can order it from? Thanks.

RE: Muckle Plum

I do. I knew Bob Muckle who hybridized it. I wasn't sure if it was well-known or not. It's a nice tree with very bright flowers compared to most plums. I don't have one but I know where one is... I don't even know if they're commercially available. Hopefully one of our tree guys can help you more.

RE: Muckle Plum

Many nurseries have it in Canada,...I had to get one this year, not sure if the US have it.
