Ummm...don't. P. Americana has a few good strains, many poor strains. it's chief downfall as a rootstock is it usually spreads by underground sprouting runners throughout your entire garden. Worse, I have had numerous cultivars grafted on these runners with many flowers but zero fruit.
When they say "almond grafts onto plum" what they probably mean is onto french-type rootstock plums like Brompton. I doubt, really doubt, that california almonds grow on P. Americana.
Jerry, can you comment on your P. Americanas as grown in your area?
