Western Sand Cherry for sale

Western Sand Cherry

Western Sand Cherry

Prunus pumila var besseyi


Western Sand Cherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green foliage and beautiful white blossoms. This makes it popular as an ornamental shrub in parks and front yards. However, both you and the wildlife will love its edible small dark red to purple cherries.

Due to its small stature and spreading qualities, Western Sandcherry is suitable as an underplanting or groundcover.

Many people graft plum and cherry varieties to Western Sand Cherry and use it as rootstock.
