Western Sand Cherry
DArtagnan Sour Cherry

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.

The D'Artagnan Cherry is a cold-hardy sour cherry that produces small, sweet dark-red berries that are ready for harvest in early August. It is typically high-yielding and the berries are good for fresh eating, or in preserves and desserts. It is comparable to the Romance series cherries, but has a typically shorter form.

The D'Artagnan Cherry is from the new Musketeer Series from the University of Saskatchewan. Cross pollinates well with the Romance series such as the Romeo or Juliet sour cherry.
