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.
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.
