Schubert Chokecherry is similar to a western chokecherry but features beautiful purple-red leaves throughout the summer.
This small, flowering tree is perfectly suited as an ornamental for city yards.
Schubert Chokecherry - 1 Year Old
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 and as many as a third of them will be green leaved and will not turn red. However, these trees will still be significantly less expensive than clones produced by cuttings or tissue culture.
