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.

Tango Weigela is one of the smallest weigelas. Its compact form makes it ideal for urban yards or areas with limited space. The red, funnel shaped flowers with yellow throats are eye catching and fragrant. Good for borders, hedges, and foundation plantings, you'll love this new addition to your yard.
