Indian Plum (Oso Berry)

Oemleria cerasiformis

Deciduous tree native to Pacific NW. Grows 6 to 15ft tall. Can grow in shady or sunny locations. Indian Plum flowers very early in the season, making it an important nectar source for pollinators. Hanging clusters of small white flowers emerge in March when leaf buds are just beginning to grow. Fruits are eatable and are often cooked or dried. Wild animals and birds also enjoy the fruit which ripens June to July.
