Patterson Pride Plum
Winterberry

Patterson Pride Plum is a fruit tree with weeping branches. This hybrid plant needs a wild plum tree for cross pollination before it can produce fruit. Patterson Pride's fruit is much larger and sweeter than other hardy plums, excellent for fresh eating, baking, jamming, and drying. A healthy tree grow ripe fruit in late summer and will not drop any fruit on the ground.
We recommend pairing Patterson Pride with Pembina Plum as these varieties cross pollinate well with each other.

Winterberry is a small shrub that produces large quantities of bright red berries that remain on the plant through the fall and into the winter. Adding this shrub to your yard will give it a unique splash of color and attract birds, especially after the leaves drop.

Note: although the foliage is attractive on its own, you need at least one male plant near your female plants or they won't produce berries.
