        Comments about Prunus besseyi Pawnee Buttes:

        Listed as plantable in sandy or average soil, but it's not my impression that the latter is true. I planted mine in an emended bed, further adding sand to loosen the soil in the area of the new planting, but the specimen sent me never got past a little leaf out, and then died. It sounded like a considerably less finicky plant
