Despite it's status as an Evergreen, I have found Blackjack Cherry to be one of the most vigorous multipliers in my zone 4 garden. It went from 2 fans to 8 in one short season. Not only that, but a 30+ budcount assures numerous blooms. I do recommend afternoon shade to preserve it's luscious color.
