Western Sandcherry

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. Thiessen saskatoons are one of the most productive saskatoons great in pies, preserves or eating fresh. However, they are most popular with u-pick operations because their height gets to about 16ft tall which is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Sandcherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green - or recessive dark red - foliage and beautiful white blossoms. You and the wildlife will both love its small dark red to purple cherries.

Due to its small stature and spreading qualities, Sandcherry is suitable as an underplanting or groundcover. Sandcherry is also a great pollinizer for plums or Nanking Cherry.
