Appeal: The Canada Red Chokecherry has unique foliage where it will emerge green in the spring and then turn to a purple burgundy color in the summer. With each push of new growth the foliage will become contrasting colors of green against the existing purples/red leaves. This tree has nicely patterned branching giving it an overall appealing shape. The Canada Red Chokecherry will also produce small white flowers in April/May. It is a great tree that can handle being planting in tough spots as well.
