November Plant of the Month

Loquat a.k.a. Japanese Plum

It's almost time for these guys to start blooming! Loquats are great ornamental trees that also produce flowers and fruit. These small rounded trees will reach about 20' in height and width. They are moderate to fast growing and prefer full sun. Loquats are evergreen and can be left alone to grow into a large shrub or trimmed up into a small tree. Fragrant pink blooms appear in fall and winter followed by a yellow-orange fruit. The fruit tastes similar to an apricot and can even be made into jelly!
