Mongolian Cherry
Mustang Cherry Plum

Mongolian Cherry is a hardy shrub that is often grown as an ornamental. This plant makes an attractive flowering hedgerow that requires little maintenance. The dark red cherries are tart and desirable for baking, wine-making, and canning. This shrub is popular with wildlife.

Mustang Cherry Plum is a cherry-plum hybrid. You'll enjoy its fragrant white flowers in spring and sweet fruit in late August (as long as there is a pollinator nearby). Mustang Cherry Plums are about one inch diameter and they have a strong cherry taste. This plant is small enough to fit in moderately sized yards.

Because of Mustang Cherry Plum’s genetics and cold hardiness, it can also be used as grafting rootstock.
