Description

All orders to California will be shipped bare root in accordance with state regulations.

A very hardy glowing landscape specimen, the Purpleleaf Sand Cherry has reddish-purple foliage that keeps its color all summer. It makes an excellent contrast tree in your landscaping. It can grow as a shrub or a small tree, and can be planted close to paved surfaces and utility lines. Also excellent as a deciduous hedge. While there will never be a large crop, its fruit is commonly used for making jams, jellies, and pie.

Important source of food for many small birds and mammals including robins and cardinals. Birds nest in its branches.

Beautiful, healthy purple sand cherry arrived in timely manner and in perfect shape. It is a healthy plant of a good size (not just a twig or two) and it is growing beautifully.
