An excellent native tree for a hedge is this. Also known as the Cherry Plum, it is often used as a rootstock for plums but produces a very acceptable fruit in its own right. It is a small tree reaching about 8m in time, doing best in a limey loam in full sun.
The masses of pure white flowers in early spring are followed by the cherry-like fruit from late July through August, which can be any colour from red to yellow. The skin is thin, the flesh soft and juicy like a small sweet plum.
