Nanking Cherry is a large wide spreading shrub. It can be pruned as a small tree. It is grown primarily for its showy white flowers which cover the plant in early spring. The  bright red fruit which ripen in early July are edible but a little tart for fresh eating. They make excellent jams and jellies.  The fruit is also relished by birds. Leaves are dark green with fuzzy undersides. Can also be used as a mass planting or informal hedge. Requires a good, well drained soil. Fairly drought tolerant. It does best in full sun. Needs cross pollination to produce fruit, so plant at least two.  There are no individual male and female plants.

Container grown.  Shipped out-of-pot with rootball wrapped.    Plants are 24-48″ & branched.
