Eastern Sand Cherry – Prunus pumila (12-18″)

Zones 3-7: A loosely branched deciduous shrub that grows 2-6’ tall. Glossy and narrow elliptical leaves are dark green and turn a purple-red color in fall. Showy white flowers in spring give way to reddish purple fruits. Flowers attract a wide range of flies and native bees, including bumble bees, miner bees, and sweat bees. Small reddish black fruits are a favorite food of more than 40 species of birds, such as bluebirds, cardinals, catbirds, kingbirds, robins, and cedar waxwings. Grows best in loamy, dry, sandy, or rocky soils; adapts to other soils with good drainage. Great for stabilizing sandy sites. Needs full sun.
