I already have a stanley plum tree, If I plant a redheart plum will the stanley be able to pollinate it?
Michael V on Jan 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A Stanley Prune Plum is a European plum; a Redheart is a Japanese plum, and they are not good partners. You need another European plum like Damson or Big Blue for your Stanley.

One of the best plums I have ever had in my home orchard. Solid growth, and a great number of plums.

Redheart Tree is surviving so far
I had a traumatic brain injury the week before this and three other trees arrived. Due to the injury the trees sat unplanted in their shipping box for about two weeks. A kind neighbor planted them for me following the best instructions I could give him. I was in and out of consciousness and the hospital for about two months. The Redheart plum was the only one of the four to ever sprout leaves. Therefore I give it four stars for heartiness. It has not bloomed yet. I am hopeful it will bloom next year.
