Black Cherry Stakes
Black Cherry Stakes also known as Prunus Serotina. Hardy planting zones 3-9. Growth rate at maturity is 50-80 feet tall and 30-60 feet wide. Black Cherry will have a white bloom from April to May that is fragrant and showy. This low maintenance tree will attract birds to the fruit it produces in late summer. These fruits will taste bitter right off the tree but can be cooked and made sweet for jams, jellies and even to flavor whiskey.
Native Americans used the bark to make a tea to be used for cough medicines and cold remedies. The wood can be used for furniture, musical instruments, and even handles for tools. Plant this tree in full sun to part shade and in well-drained, medium to moist fertile soil. Long tap root could make this tree difficult to transplant. It is resistant to a good number of pest and disease. This tree makes a wonderful addition to any landscape or garden area.
