Amur Cherry
Sweet Thing Cherry

Amur Cherry is a beautiful, fast-growing ornamental tree. It features attractive bronze/red bark that peels horizontally in strips.

This hardy tree bears white flowers in the spring, black fruit held in clusters in the late summer, and pointy leaves that turn yellow in the fall.

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.
