Santa Rosa Plum Tree: Orchard Elegance in Your Backyard

About the Fruit

The Santa Rosa Plum is a luscious gem that adorns any garden with its vibrant hues and mouth-watering flavors. This plum variety is famous for its juicy, crimson flesh wrapped in a dusky purple skin that possesses a heavenly sweet-tart essence. Perfect for fresh snacking, cooking, or transforming into delightful jams, the Santa Rosa Plum offers a versatile range of culinary delights that are sure to captivate your taste buds.

What to Know About the Tree

The Santa Rosa Plum Tree is a deciduous wonder that brings seasonal dynamism to your garden. In spring, it is adorned with white blossoms that offer a delicate fragrance. Growing to a manageable height of 15-25 feet, this tree is suitable for various garden sizes. It features broad green foliage that becomes a canvas for the stunning, purplish-red plums as they ripen. The Santa Rosa is self-pollinating, which means even a single tree will produce an ample harvest.

Harvest Season

Anticipation builds as summer approaches, signaling the arrival of the Santa Rosa Plum’s harvest season. From late June through July, the branches hang heavy with the bounty of succulent plums, ready to be plucked and savored. This season brings an enchanting display to your garden, with the fruits’ rich colors beautifully contrasted against the summer greens.

Fruitscaping™ with Plum Trees

Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of Fruitscaping™ with our beautiful and bountiful Plum Trees. Famed for their attractive blossoms and delicious fruits, these trees will become a standout feature of your home orchard or edible landscape.

Plum trees are low maintenance and highly resistant to pests and diseases, making them a fantastic choice for organic gardens. They flourish in well-drained, fertile soil and appreciate full sun exposure for the healthiest growth and the highest fruit yield.

We offer a diverse selection of Plum tree varieties, such as Santa Rosa, AU Rubrum, AU Rosa, Segunda, and Gulf varieties like Gulf Blaze and Gulf Beauty. Each variety delivers unique flavors and colors – from the succulent, crimson-hued fruits of the Santa Rosa, to the sweet, golden delight of Gulf Beauty. Whether you plan to make jams, pies, or enjoy them fresh from the tree, our Plum Trees cater to every preference.

In your Fruitscaping™ design, Plum trees offer much more than just tasty fruit. Their early spring blossoms provide a breathtaking display of white or pink, announcing the arrival of the warmer seasons. Come fall, their leaves turn vibrant shades of red and yellow, injecting a splash of color into your landscape.

Plum trees can be trained into beautiful espaliers against a wall or fence, or grown as free-standing trees in your yard. If you’re working with limited space or wish to decorate your patio or deck, they’re also excellent for container gardening.

Embark on your Fruitscaping™ adventure with our Plum Trees today. From planting and caring, to harvesting and savoring your very own homegrown plums, you’re in for a truly gratifying gardening journey. Enjoy the process and the fruit of your labor with our Plum Trees.

Unfortunately, We Cannot Process Orders to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or Internationally:  Please note that due to specific agricultural regulations, we’re unable to ship any plants to the states of California, Hawaii, and Alaska, or outside the United States.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
