NANKING CHERRY     Prunus tomentosa

The Nanking Cherry is a great flowering shrub which offers the added bonus of tasty fruit which is also good for preserves.

Medium Shrub: Height 2m (6ft).

Foliage: Medium textured, deeply veined, dull green.

Flowers: White to pink, born in late May, early June.

Fruit: A bright red cherry of one half inch or more diameter. Very good for out of hand eating.

Comments: One of these shrubs along the back fence will be a hit with everyone when the fruit ripens. It is a reliable hardy plant. It will yield fruit more consistently if planted close to another late flowering plant like the Western Sandcherry.
