Prunus virginiana / Chokecherry

$16.00

Clear

Description

This is one of the most important Native American staple fruits, a shrub to small tree with abundant flowers and glowing dark cherries in late summer. Like so many plants of our continent, it is maligned with a nasty name. But it excels as lepidopteran host, pollinator plant, songbird food, and as a jam, syrup, fruit leather, and pemmican fruit. In herbal medicine, it is used (like black cherry) as a cough remedy.

Height: 5′ – 15′      Blooms: May

Habitat: Mesic to dry soil, sun – shade
