The Nanking Cherry Bush is a lovely ornamental shrub with fragrant white flowers in the spring and edible scarlet fruit that ripen mid-summer. This cherry bush is incredibly hardy and dense enough to serve as a hedge or edible border.

Bearing fruit within the first few years, this high producing cherry variety is relished by birds and pollinators alike. The cherries can be eaten fresh or used in pies, jams, and jellies.

The Nanking Cherry is a vigorous, adaptable shrub particularly suited to the cold winters and hot summers of the central and northern plains. Plant two or more of the same variety for cross-pollination.
