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.
