Butternut
Double Flowering Plum

Butternut is one of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The nuts are sought after for their mild, sweet, and oily taste. Ensure this tree is planted in full sun and well-drained soil for best results.

Butternut is self-fertile but it has better yields when planted near other butternuts. It can survive in zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3.

With the Double Flowering Plum in your garden, you'll be the envy of your block. Not only is it a stunning visual, but it is one of the earliest spring bloomers. With its gorgeous double pink blooms, this Plum is irresistible to birds, butterflies, and neighbours alike.
