Western Sand Cherry
Red Rugosa Rose

Western Sand Cherry is known for its unique, leathery grey-green foliage and beautiful white blossoms. It is a popular ornamental shrub in parks and front yards. 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. It is also popular to graft hardy apricots to.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Red Rugosa Rose is well-known for its incredible cold hardiness and disease resistance. This variety has beautiful crimson red flowers followed by scarlet rose hips in autumn. Try using the rose hips to make syrups or add flavor to existing fruit dishes and drinks.

Due to their overly thorny stems, Red Rugosa Rose is perfect for creating an impenetrable, deer resistant hedge. We recommend applying mulch during the summer months to retain moisture, cool the roots, and prevent weeds.

Note: This variety is from a seed source, not cuttings. Although somewhat true to seed and color expect some variability.
