‘Mount Royal’ Plum is draped in stunning clusters of fragrant white flowers along the branches in early spring before the leaves emerge. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves turn yellow in autumn. The fruits are showy blue drupes carried in abundance which ripen in mid to late August and are excellent for eating out of hand, cooking and baking and making jams and jellies. Mount Royal is a European plum, hence no pollinator is needed.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
