Indian plum is found growing in variety of sites that range from dry upland sites to moist riparian areas. It grows in either open, fully exposed sites, or as an under-story species growing in full shade. It can grow up to 18 feet tall, spreading to 15 feet wide. Indian plum is one of the first flowering native shrubs to herald the approach of spring. Its white, fragrant, drooping flowers appear in March, before many species leaf out. The flowers give rise to berries that ripen and turn purple in June, which provide a favorite source of food for many bird species.
