Nicknamed the Manchurian Cherry. This mid-sized tree offers year-round visual interest.

This is a flowering and fruiting smaller tree for colder regions. It makes a great choice for a specimen in a bird-friendly landscape or informal food forest.

You’ll welcome spring with a wonderful, fragrant flower display of drooping clusters. Delicate 3-inch racemes of pristine, white blossoms herald the new season. They’ll entice butterflies and pollinators to collect the nectar.

Birds nest in the well-balanced branches of this round-headed tree. It delivers a symmetrical look, but has an open and airy feeling that works well in naturalized landscapes.

Those pretty, white flowers transition to small, red drupes that transition to black as they ripen in July. They are edible, and – with sugar – can be used in tasty jams and jellies.

Of course, you’ll need to race the hungry birds for your share! The birds will flock to feast upon the fruit in summer.

Delightful, light green foliage covers the tree for summer, and in many years develops shades of yellow for fall color. The leaves typically drop quickly for easy fall clean-up.

However, of all the benefits of this remarkable tree, the bark is perhaps the most beloved. Prunus maackii has amazing bark on older trunks as they enlarge.

Similar to a Birch tree, the outer bark peels back in thin, paper-like sheets in a stunning display. Amur Chokecherry’s attractive bark peels to reveal various shades of bronze, amber, copper and orange.

The unique bark is especially welcome during the winter months, when it infuses color into the barren landscape. Plant it front and center where you’ll enjoy it all year.

Chokecherry, Amur
