Cupid Cherry
Anthony Waterer Spiraea

Cupid Cherry is a hardy deciduous hybrid shrub variety of Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of dwarf sour cherries from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004. Cupid Cherry produces the largest fruit of all the sour cherries which is dark/red fruit and perfect for fresh eating but it tends to be a bit later than other varieties.

Anthony Waterer Spiraea is a low maintenance shrub with a dwarf, rounded form. In spring and summer rosy pink blooms emerge against green foliage. Its tolerance of a variety of well-drained soils makes it an ideal foundation, landscaping, or border plant.

If deer and rabbit are an issue on your property, consider planting Anthony Waterer Spiraea for its deer/rabbit resistance. Due to its compact form, minimal pruning is required.
