That is a nice website but has nothing at all on plumcots and only a few plum varieties mentioned. I have noticed nursurey websites often only list the pollinaters they stock and not the other possible pollinators out there, try http://www.agric.wa.gov.au/PC_91809.html?s=1001. From what i can gather at this location santa rosa and wilson start flowering early september wheras maraposia begins flowering even earlier in late August and there is some overlap between santa rosa and maraposia in flowering times as dawsons website recomends them as pollinators for each other. You should be okay with either unless you chosen plumcot variety is so early it has finished flowering by the end of august which i dought. Personaly if i had to choose one i would go maraposia as you want to make sure flowers come on early enough to pollinate your first tree and you only need a few stragling flowers to pollinate the second tree. There is a maraposia at my friends place it has been flowering for a couple of weeks and still has new flower buds opening. If you are realy short of space you could go a muligraft.

If however you go for the spring satin plumcot it appears nursuries are recomending apricot pollinators. I am not an expert correct me if i am wrong team.

It is interesting to note on the website http://www.naturalhub.com/grow_fruit_cultivars_plum_new_zealand.htm it says Mariposa is the best pollinator for Wilsons early. According to these kiwi's, even though Santa rosa has compatible pollen it does not have enough flowering overlap. If this is the case Mariposa is the preferred pollinator for both your trees
