Canada Red Chokecherry
The cultivated 'Canada Red' or 'Shubert' chokecherry can be seen on the landscape in the urban environment. These cultivars have a deep red or purple color to their foliage. The trees tend to have issues when planted on the boulevard. The fruit is quite acerbic but can be used for making jellies, jams, and wine. They can produce copious amounts of suckers, have witches brooms and be short lived.
