Just noticed this one a few days ago, never saw it before. It is growing right on the edge of our woods. Blooms started a week ago and are now gone. Any ideas?

Black Cherry? Wild Cherry? Choke Cherry? Not enough details in the images.

It reminds me of the wild chokecherries that grow out here in the desert. They are large shrubs (20 or 30 feet tall). The locals call them 'Whiskey Cherries'.

They grow all over the desert near streams. My Grandmother used to make the most incredible Jam from them (it took a lot of sugar). The plants were so tall, I had to stand on the saddle of my horse to pick the fruit. Smiling

I think Prunus virginiana - Western Chokecherry.

The blooms remind me of Choke Cherry, for comparison:

Definitely a species of cherry.

There are probably more than a few Prunus species that can grow in Texas. I would suspect it is NOT Prunus serotina, but probably one of the minor species.

Observe the maturation of the already forming fruit you've shown, to assist in the ID.

Look at the leaf. If it's a Prunus serotina there will be two very tiny glands...this link has a photo with helpful arrows pointing where you should look. If there are no glands you can rule out P. serotina.

Confused The plant has not yet been identified.
Excuse me, but I do not see an ID in your post. What do you think this plant is? Thank you. Thank You!

@greene I think Frank was agreeing that it is a Prunus species.

Thank you for answering for Frank. I was kind of hoping Frank would offer up an ID for this plant himself.

My secret hope is that it is the special Prunus that only grows in certain parts of Texas. Prunus serotina Ehrh. var. eximia (Small) Little aka Edwards Plateau Black Cherry. Keeping my fingers crossed. Crossing Fingers!

Well, I've never seen it in this part of Texas, if that is any help.
