Prunus maackii Jefdike

NOT AVAILABLE THIS SEASON

Western Chokecherry
Klondike Amur Cherry

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, jellies or wine, but are not very palatable for raw eating.

The Klondike Amur Cherry is an attractive cultivar which features showy, peeling gold bark and textured oval leaves that turn bright yellow in fall. It blooms with fragrant white flowers in mid spring, and produces tiny, tart black berries through the summer. The Klondike Amur Cherry was bred to have improved stem strength and stronger branching.

This tree makes a great addition to urban gardens and commercial planting, and is immune to black knot.
