PRUNUS americanaEarly Spring2908

PRUNUS pensylvanicaSpring2910
Pin, Bird or Fire Cherry6m  Zone: 2
A fast-growing small tree, shrub-like in habit, native across northern North America growing in forest clearings, hillsides and riverbanks; usually on well-drained sites. This very hardy species is often used as a grafting root-stock. White flowers appear in spring at the same time as the leaves. Bark is lustrous, red-brown, with long horizontal orange lenticels; sometimes peeling in horizontal strips. Small, sour bright-red cherries in mid to late summer. The fruits are a favourite of many birds. Pincherries are used to make jellies, juice, syrup, wine, sauce and components of baked goods. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.

PRUNUS pumila Early Summer2911
Sand or Susquehanna Cherry45-90cm  Zone: 3
Native to north-eastern North America this is a low-growing, trailing, multi-branched shrub growing on dunes, gravelly beaches, alvars and rocky slopes. It is identifiable by its low, spreading profile, stout branches, and leathery, sharply pointed leaves. In the variety susquehanae (sometimes recognized as a distinct species) the branches are erect to ascending. White five-parted flowers in early summer followed by purple-black cherries in late summer. Although it can grow to 2m, it's average size is 45cm. Sand Cherry is one of the early plants to colonize sand dunes and is an important food for birds and other animals who make dunes their habitat. This consistently heavy-fruiting cherry makes excellent preserves and will provide you with more pounds of fruit earlier than most other small fruit. Seed wild collected in northern Ontario. Limited.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required

PRUNUS tomentosaSpring2903
Nanking Cherry1.8-3m  Zone: 2
I was first introduced to Nanking Cherry by Hugh Skinner in 1998? as we tasted our way along a long hedge of them in Zone 2 Manitoba. And as I ate the delicious small fruit, I put each pit in the pocket of my coat, determined to grow them once I got home. Nanking Cherry is a compact shrub, native to northern China and Japan, which can also be grown as a small tree. It has beautiful pinkish-white flowers in spring. The dark green leaves break dormancy early, are retained even in drought and are slow to drop after the first killing frost. Fruit is a small, short-stemmed red cherry with a wonderful sweet taste. Its hardiness, rapid growth, dense, compact form, and excellent retention of leaves makes this species a desirable shrub for the northern garden.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment required.
