Black cherry starter tree (prunus serotina) Common eastern North American tree that can get 80ft plus. Prized for its wood, has clusters of white flowers in spring which turn to small clusters of dark colored little cherries. The bark is rather unique too. We like it because multiple butterfly and moths prefer it as a hostplant including the red spotted purple, eastern tiger swallowtail, promethea moth, and cecropia moth.
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. If ordered in the fall they may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage but in late fall or winter will just be old stems.
All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed .
