Last look at flowering plum tree blossoms?

Flowering plum trees in Menlo Park

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.
