Upright rapid growing tropical tree reached as much as 30 to 40 feet in the home landscape. Rigid and symmetrical the June Plum tree is a stately ornamental for the container gardener. Glossy green, elliptic leaves grow to lengths of 2 to 4 inches with finely toothed margins hang gracefully against the nearly smooth light grey-brown bark.
Leaves transform to bright yellow in the autumn before dropping for the winter months leaving a handsomely bare tree. Flowers appear in large terminal panicles giving way to long stalked fruits that dangle in bunches. June Plum Trees are fast growing and require space to stretch out, so plant your rows on 18 foot centers or for individual trees choose a location at least 10 feet from other trees or shrubs.
A well-draining soil is of primary importance as June Plum Trees roots do not like to be wet and will rot if allowed to sit in water for extended periods. A mixture of soil, sand and perlite is highly recommended for proper drainage. When watering June Plum Trees make sure to lightly soak the soil and then do not water again until the top 2 inches are dry. Depending on light conditions, location and foliage watering may be required weekly or daily. Be sure to not over water, mucky soil will almost always cause decay and ultimately kill the tree.
It is recommended that you fertilize at the same time as you water using a time released fertilizer 8-3-9 or similar to help your June Plum Trees grow and produce a substantial crop. These trees are moderate feeders and may require multiple feeding during the growing season. It is important to follow the fertilizers labeled instructions as to not burn or kill the tree.
