Canada Red Select Cherry
Cherry Tree with Brilliant Foliage
Canada Red Select Cherry is a hardy tree with strong, ornamental features. Plant one as an accent tree for color in your garden. These also work well as a shrubby border or use one for some definition in a natural area.
Your Canada Red Select Cherry has vigorous growth, a straight trunk and a uniform top. It’s a versatile plant, equally at home when trimmed as a tree or grown as a shrub.
The beautiful foliage begins green, maturing to maroon-red for a lively, decorative spring display.
Petite, white flowers add to the show with their fragrant blossoms, developing into tiny, red fruit for summer that will be savored by your yard’s feathered friends. Snatch a few yourself to use in jam or jellies for a tasty treat straight from your own yard.
Canada Red Select Cherry grows 20-25 feet tall with an 18-20 foot spread. The foliage of this “select” cherry is a darker red, and has a thicker leaf texture than the regular Canada Red. It prefers full sun, but tolerates clay and high pH soils.
It’s a hardy tree that is easy to grow and not only a boon for your landscape, but a welcome site for pollinators and other wildlife.
