Western Chokecherry
Double Flowering Plum

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.

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.
