Prunus angustifolia is a small tree native across the southeast. It is found primarily in sandy soil in gaps along roadsides, riverbanks, abandoned fields, and disturbed areas. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil in the full sun. It produces white flowers that bloom in the spring and attract many pollinators, and has red fruits that ripen in the late summer and are eaten by humans, songbirds, turkeys, and small mammals. This small tree also provides excellent cover for birds in the winter. It is a host tree for several native butterfly species. Prunus angustifolia works great as a yard or street tree, or for use in restoration plantings.
