Mexican plum packs a punch. It is a Texas-tough ornamental tree that has attractive exfoliating bark and provides a delightful bloom display in early spring. Both wildlife friendly and drought tolerant, Mexican plum can be grown in full sun or as an understory tree, preferring deep, well-drained soil. It produces edible, if tart, plums that make delicious jam or jelly.
