Hi I just want to know if anyone here has a source for seeds or scions of Prunus texana? I am interested to get this plant because it provides a good breeding resource.

1. It is drought tolerant and tolerates poor soils.
2. Fruits are decent tasting and flower can cross with other plums.
3. It blooms in 12 months or less.

It is found in the Rio Grande Plains and Edward Plateau which is mid to southern Texas.

I am aware there are two ascensions ( DPRU 1872 and DPRU 403) in the UC Davis Germplasm but they are ID as Prunus glandulosa.

Hi,
I am retired teacher horticulture and also interested in the same specimen, supposing that it is true to seed.
We try to establish a prunarium with native stone fruit, for the Antwerp horticulture college, in Flanders (Europe).
Please let me know if you had any positive results.
Thanks beforehand.

I got a failed message for my mail to hillcountrynatives:

The following message to <'emitch@hillcountrynatives.net'> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.2 - Bad destination host "DNS Hard Error looking up hillcountrynatives.net' (MX): NXDomain"

Final-Recipient: rfc822;'emitch@hillcountrynatives.net'
Action: failed
Status: 5.0.0 (permanent failure)
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 5.1.2 - Bad destination host "DNS Hard Error looking up hillcountrynatives.net' (MX): NXDomain" (delivery attempts: 0)

It seems to be a wrong spelled or old e-mail adress.
Somebody have a working address, please?

Hi Leo,
The link worked for me as is but I went to their site and got their phone #. It is 512-914-7519.

Good luck!
Dan

Leo,
I just remembered that you are in Europe. In case it's too expensive to call Austin on a whim I'll call them and let you know what they say.

Ok Dan,

I got contact already, and a positive answer.
I even called but got an answering machine. No problem, I have a deal with my phone (fixed line) provider to call for free in our evening hours (between 17h and 8 h) central European time. Destination Europe complete, North Africa ánd the US. Texas is about 7 hours later as we are. So ideal for me because 17 h. here means thus 10 p.m in Texas, as far as my information is right.
Thanks a lot for the help, maybe I come back later on, during midsummer.
Cordially
Leo Aerts
