The Prunus Collection (cherries, apricots, plums, etc.) will be rejuvinated with some newer plantings in 2008. The better known Prunus are generally the Japanese plums and cherries which are not hardy in Minnesota. The apricots Moongold and Sungold are two introductions from the Horticultural Research Center are both necessary for fruit but they bear sporadically at best. The flowers are a beautiful shade of pink. Another introduction, Prunus ‘Princess Kay’ is a spectacular double flowering selection of Canada plum and certainly worth being in the garden but it is short lived.
