Sweet cherries are not compatible with either P. Angustafolia, the
chickasaw wild plum or a useful non-stoloniferous hybrid of P.
Angustafolia x P. Jaquemonti that the late Herb Durant made.  P.
Jaquemonti is a low-chill ornamental bush cherry that fruits in Houston. 
I do not know if other hybrids with plums work.
