Amur Chokecherry is a nice looking rounded tree with glistening, peeling, bronze bark. White spring flowers and small black cherries in the fall provide food for the birds.

Water regularly as needed during growing season. Keep moist. Do not over water. Fertilize in spring prior to new growth. Prune as needed to control size and shape. This tree does well in my short summer zone 3a garden.
