Also known as Amur Cherry. Grow it for the fantastic-looking bark alone.

Neutral darylmitchell On Oct 18, 2005, darylmitchell from Saskatoon, SK (Zone 3a) wrote:

Amur chokecherry are used as accent trees in this area, with single or multiple trunks. They are pyramidal in shape when young, becoming more rounded as they mature. They are desirable for their shiny, metallic copper coloured bark that exfoliates and provides year-round interest. They also produce clusters of pendulous white blossoms in spring, and black fruit that attracts birds. Problems can include a short life span, frost cracking, and black knot fungus.
