Western Sand Cherry
Sweet Thing 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 Sweet Thing Cherry is a sour cherry hybrid of Carmine Jewel and Erdi Jubileum that produces sweeter and firmer berries than other cold-hardy sour cherry varieties. The berries are a deep burgundy red and quite sweet, making them excellent for fresh eating and also desserts, jams and jellies.

The Sweet Thing Cherry, or the Jubileum, is highly suckering so it can establish your hedge quickly, or fill in gaps.
