Plant Id possibly wild plum?

Amelia Court House, VA(Zone 7b)

I let this grow in an old pot until I can figure out what it is.

Is it a baby plum tree?

I have no clue but I did google wild plum seedling and found just 1 picture which could be a match. I think you will have to let it age more to be sure.

Amelia Court House, VA(Zone 7b) could still be some sort of wild fruit tree but prunus Americana Iím thinking no. Foliage seems to be too shiny and I see no folding along the midrib. It is in a shadier spot so Iíll move it to a much brighter location and see if anything changes.

For now Iím going to say itís inconclusive to me.

I think Iím close. I think I have the right genus but instead of plum perhaps a wild cherry tree?

Here in central va there are several different wild cherry trees but I can eliminate black cherry.

That leaves choke cherry, wild cherry, sweet cherry and sour cherry. I hope itís a sour cherry but I have to look into it further.

I hope it is what you want. Kind of fun to wait and watch!
