Due to these unusual times of CoVid-19 and the extremely high volume of orders that we have received here at Crimson Sage over the last 3 months, we have decided to stop taking new plant orders at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we need some time to fulfill our current orders and to replenish some of our inventory!! Thanks for your understanding, patience, and choosing to shop with a small, woman owned business. It is truly heart warming to see so many folks nationwide planting their Medicinal Gardens. We will be back up and running as soon as we can!

If you have already placed an order with us, we are shipping as much as possible each week and plan to get your orders shipped over the month of June into early July.

Description

Wild Black Cherry, Choke Cherry. Hardy landscape tree growing to 25 feet and covered with white blooms in the spring followed by reddish purple fruit, great for syrups and Jam. The bark has a distinctive bitter almond smell when mixed with water, decocted and mixed with honey for a traditional cough syrup. The wild cherry bark syrup is a well known remedy for respiratory complaints such as bronchitis and coughing associated with the common cold. It is also effective for diarrhea and indigestion in children and has a general tonifying effect on the body. Easy to keep pruned for sustainable bark harvesting and a great wildlife tree as many species besides humans are attracted to its tasty fruits. The Wild Cherry has lovely fall color and is very tolerant to heat and drought once established. Hardy to zone 2.

Latin Name Prunus virginiana
