Red Canadian Chokecherry Newsletter



A Terrific Choice

This tree was a mystery tree in my garden for several years. I had purchased it at one of the local plant sales and of course lost the tags with the name information. Mystery solved while doing a video shoot in the Wichita, Kansas arboretum. There it was with the identification at the base. Since that time I have planted more of these colorful trees and have continued to be pleased. The foliage is a pleasant lime green in the spring, followed by pretty fragrant flowers and then the foliage starts its color transition. Here's a photo review of one of my trees and a link to the more detailed info about this nice tree. You won't find this chokecherry in all nurseries but it is available online and it transplants easily.
