Prunus virginiana             In stock

Another native of the U.S.A is this decorative shrubby member of the prunus family. In time it can get to about 4m in height, preferring a relatively moist soil in a sheltered sunny spot. 

The flowers in early spring are popular with the bees and the leaves vary in colour from dark red to pale green but all turn a vivid scarlet in the autumn. 
The fruit is used by native Americans, small, dark red and usually cooked.
