Prunus persica - Entire PlantColony of Small Trees from Roots of original Tree

This colony of small naturalized peach trees have grown out from the roots of an adult tree that was destroyed in high water. The small trees are located approximately two meters from the water of Tomahawk Creek. There does not appear to be any other domestic peach trees growing in the neighborhood. Thus the small trees appearing here have been labled as "naturalized".

See the article "History of Peach Trees" for an excellent accounting of the introduction of domestic peach trees in the United States.
