Caring For Sand Cherry Bushes

These small flowering deciduous fruiting shrubs are highly adaptable to various soil types and climates. Cold-hardy, you'll get the best show of blooms and fruit set in full sun. Typically xeric and hardy plants, Sand Cherry thrive in some tough conditions in nature, but these native and hybrid plants also do well in average garden conditions!

Sand Cherries thrive in harsher conditions due to their deep root system, enabling established plants to survive drought. Like most plants, these hardy natives need well-drained soil and average fertility. Provide a layer of mulch to help insulate the roots and support their moisture needs.

These plants bloom in the spring so to get maximum bloom displays, prune right after they have finished blooming. You can also renewal prune every 3-5 years to keep the branching vigorous and remove older branches that are less productive.
