Prunus virginiana Canada Red

Amur Chokeberry Canada Red

A deciduous tree, Prunus virginiana Canada Red is a medium-sized, quite fast-growing tree with a rounded crown and spreading, arching habit. The leaves are ovoid, with several leaflets, emerging green, becoming deep purple in early summer, and turning reddish-purple in autumn. Racemes of white flowers are produced in May; these are followed by black fruits. Chokeberry Canada Red’s fruit is very astringent, but it can be used (without the seed, which is toxic) in jams and preserves; it is toxic to sheep, horses, dogs and cattle. It is very drought-tolerant.
