The trees are pretty enough to include in an edible landscape. And why not? People across the country are buying and growing fruiting trees—even in suburban landscapes.

This variety is well-branched and spreading. You'll love the ornamental charm of the fragrant spring blossoms, and the developing harvest is absolutely gorgeous.

Get a jump-start on those product years with this precocious variety. It starts bearing fine-quality fruit at an early age and is a valuable pollinizer for other Sweet Cherries.

These vigorous trees have larger leaves than other varieties. With sturdy branches, Corum can also be used as a hard-working privacy screen.

How to Use Corum Sweet Cherry Trees in the Landscape

You'll be pleased to learn how versatile these fruiting trees are in garden design. Keep them in a mulched bed to cut down on work, and to protect the trunk from string trimmer damage.

Use them in the middle of your yard as a lovely, informal grouping with several other varieties. You'll gain a gorgeous view, plenty of privacy and a tasty harvest.

Add them behind your patio seating, or use it as a living fence around a Children's Garden. Try them as a hedgerow along your fence.

They make a great backdrop to perennials and colorful small shrubs like Neon Flash Spirea. They can even be added as very modern small trees in foundation plantings, as well.

Keep them at least 25 feet away from structures for the best air flow. Why not use a row of them along your driveway, if you have a sunny spot?

You'll create a wonderful legacy with fruiting trees. Orchards have been enjoyed for millenia, and people are rediscovering the joys of these valuable trees.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Plant Sweet Cherry trees in full sun with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. They need well-drained soil and a planting site with good air circulation, too.

Carefully select a planting site that gets morning sun for Corum to keep the foliage dry. Avoid the use of overhead watering. Drip irrigation is best to keep your plants healthy.

Plant 12 feet apart from pollination partners. These trees grow into an attractive shape, and can be allowed to grow to full height and spread.

You can also choose to prune fruiting trees in late summer to keep them under 10 feet tall. Decide on the height and spread you want, and tip prune to keep them at that size.
