I’ve admired the beautiful bronze bark of this Amur chokecherry (Prunus maackii) since I discovered it and three companions a couple months ago on a site near my workplace. I will be even more impressed once the trees start blooming….
I only have to wait for a couple more weeks, right? 😉 I had to laugh when I heard the season humorously referred to as “Sprinter” – that seems so perfectly apt! More snow expected here this weekend….
Do you grow chokecherries or any other Prunus species? Which ones are your favourites?
