Western Sand Cherry
Double Flowering Plum

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.

With the Double Flowering Plum in your garden, you'll be the envy of your block. Not only is it a stunning visual, but it is one of the earliest spring bloomers. With its gorgeous double pink blooms, this Plum is irresistible to birds, butterflies, and neighbours alike.
