Russian Almond vs Pembina Plum

Prunus tenella

Prunus x Pembina

Russian Almond
Pembina Plum

Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

Pembina Plum is an upright tree great for backyards and rural areas. This hardy tree needs to be pollinated by a wild plum tree in order to produce high yields of fruit. We recommend pairing Pembina with Patterson Pride Plum as these varieties cross pollinate well with each other.

Pembina Plum's famously large fruit grows to over 2 inches with thick, acidic skin and sweet flesh. People love this fruit for fresh eating, baking, and preserving. Do not procrastinate collecting these plums. If left too long, the fruit will fall off the tree.
