Western Chokecherry
Neon Flash Spiraea

Western Chokecherry is a shrub or small tree commonly used for farmstead and field windbreaks.

It produces white flowers in the spring and edible dark purple fruit that matures between September and October. Its cherries are great for making for making jams and jellies (or wine), but are not very palatable for raw eating.

Neon Flash Spiraea is a colorful, low maintenance, and multi-purpose shrub.

Late spring to fall you’ll be drawn to its vibrant neon red blooms that rest on a neat mound of green foliage. If deer and rabbit are an issue on your property, consider planting Neon Flash Spiraea for its deer/rabbit resistance. Its tolerance of a variety of well-drained soils makes it an ideal foundation, landscaping, or border plant.
