The many, local flowering plum trees have been ablaze in pink for the past few weeks. But the heavy rains – or snow! – predicted for Friday/Saturday could knock the buds to the ground. We checked in with Rod Webster at Roger Reynolds Nursery about the tree’s popularity and its blooming season:
“It’s a good choice because it’s easy to grow and likes the climate here on the mid-Peninsula. It blooms while it’s still winter – in a February/March window – so brings a lot of color to what can be a dull landscape. It’s six week blooming season is only shortened by stormy weather.”
Footnote: bad weather or not, Roger Reynolds is holding its sale weekend this Saturday and Sunday (2/26 and 2/27), offering 30% off everything in the nursery and 30% off living plants in the Carriage Store.
