PINCHERRY     Prunus pensylvanica

The Pincherry is a small, upright oval shaped tree which is valued for its fruit and its bright orange fall colour. It occurs naturally at sunny dry edges of clearings.

Small Tree: Height 5m (18ft).

Foliage: Green leaves are long narrow and pointed, course textured.

Flowers: Small white flowers are produced freely. Quite showy.

Fruit: Small bright red cherries are born freely in small corymbs. Great for jellies and wines. The birds like them too.

Fall Colour: Bright orange.

Comments: This is a native plant which should be used more. Its shape, fruit, and fall colour make it very special. Unfortunately, it does have a tendency to sucker.
