Chickasaw Plum is usually a shrub that may grow 15 feet tall. The leaves are alternate with a finely toothed margin. The bark is smooth and red with numerous elongated light lenticels. As the tree ages, the bark becomes scaly and shallowly furrowed. In early spring, small, 5-petaled, white flowers mature in clumps. The small tree produces a 1/2-inch, yellow-to-red drupe that matures in summer.

The Chickasaw plum grows best in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. It is important to promptly remove root suckers to prevent any unwanted spread. This plant is adaptable to wide range of growing conditions and soils.

Host plant for Coral Hairstreak, Eastern Tiger Swallowtail, Spring Azure, Viceroy and Red-spotted Purple Butterflies.
