Garden Plant: Amur Chokecherry
Product Description: Amur Chokecherry
A Tree for All Seasons! Amur Chokecherry is a large shrub or medium tree with ornamental qualities.
Its smaller size makes it ideal for your patio or side yard.
You could also use it as a specimen tree in a visible location where its 4-season interest can be enjoyed.
The Amur Chokecherry has a lot to offer year-round.
Beginning in spring, dense 3-inch racemes of pristine, white blossoms herald the new season with their fragrance and delicate beauty.
The flowers soon transition to small drupes that ripen from red to black in July, and can be used in tasty jams and jellies.
3-inch, oblong leaves of delightful, light green hues fill out the tree in summer, turning to shades of yellow for fall.
However, of all the benefits of this remarkable tree, the bark is perhaps the most beloved.
Similar to a Birch tree, the Amur Chokecherry’s bark peels to reveal various shades of bronze and orange-a stunning display throughout the year, but especially during the winter months when it infuses color into the barren landscape.
Amur Chokecherry will grow to about 25 feet in height with a variable width (depending upon if grown as a shrub or tree).
It’s a hardy tree that tolerates some cold, drought and salt conditions.
It’s also pest resistance, so you’re less likely to have to spray it.
Small mammals and birds love to partake of its fruit, so Chokecherry is even beneficial for your yard’s wildlife.
Truly a tree for all seasons, Amur Chokecherry will bring you interest and enjoyment for years to come.
