Chokecherry Prunus 'Virginiana'

Don't dismiss the Chokecherry just because of its name. It is a versatile, thornless shrub with beautiful scented flowers   reminiscent of almonds . The cherry fruits provide an abundant food source for birds as well as tasty treats for the gardener.  Blooming after the leaves appear, they are attractive in the garden from mid-May through June. They were an extremely important crop to native north Americans, who dried the fruit in the sun and used them all through the winter. Wonderful for Jams and Jellies.chokecherry may also be utilized as a screen or in mass plantings, being aware of its propensity for suckering and multiplying. Also, keep in mind that deer love to graze on chokecherry trees, so if you don't want deer, you don't ant chokecherry. Harvest when fruit is dark or taste will be astrigent. Very hardy, native to Colorado. NOTE: a broken branch with wilted leaves is poisonous to horses. The seeds(pits) are poisonous for them too. Makes awonderful loose tall hedge or windbreak.
