This non-suckering selection of the Schubert Chokecherry is dark red in color, almost black. It also has a paler color of bark that makes a stark yet attractive contrast. Combined, these traits make it extremely popular with landscapers and home owners alike.
These trees are grown from tissue culture to ensure clonal reproduction.
Schubert Chokecherry is a small fruit bearing deciduous tree or shrub that has maroon colored leaves throughout the growing season. Schubert Chokecherry makes a perfect focal point tree due to its season long colour, and it can also be used in shelterbelts. A few (~10%) of these seedlings grew too large for their plugs and were replanted into larger 515A plugs. They are mixed with the regular plugs in this group.
Please Note: These trees are grown from seed. This means natural diversity will cause only 30-40% to put on red leaves, the rest will remain green. Seed grown trees are much less expensive than cutting or tissue culture seedlings, and the diversity helps protect from disease and pests.
