Russian Almond is a low maintenance, short, slightly suckering shrub. It is covered with attractive, bright pink flowers in early spring before its foliage emerges.

This hardy species forms dense thickets attracts wildlife. Russian Almond prefers full sun and well-drained soils, but can tolerate moist soils.

The nuts it produces are quite attractive but very small. They are bitter and possibly toxic in large quantities.

The Cutie Pie Sour Cherry produces fruit that are sweeter than other sour cherry varieties. Good for fresh eating and for making jams and jellies. They are small in stature (shrub like) and multi stemmed, which makes for a good hedge.

They are cold hardy and are a hybrid of Mongolian and European sour cherries, produced by the University of Saskatchewan.

They have small, attractive, white flowers. Cutie Pie Sour Cherry trees are self pollinating and require moist, well-drained soil. For better yields, plant compatible cultivars such as the Romeo Cherry nearby.
