Thiessen Saskatoon
Diablo Ninebark

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. They are one of the most productive saskatoons. Their fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is most popular with u-pick operations for its taller tree-like shape and much larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards because it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Diablo Ninebark is a small, low maintenance, multi-stemmed shrub, that is used to add texture or colour to any yard. This plant grows dark purple leaves in the spring and grows slightly faster than Common Ninebark. It features flaky red to brown bark, clusters of white flowers, and long, maple-like leaves. Diablo Ninebark can make a dense and colourful hedge, or it can be an attractive ornamental by itself.
