Small white flower clusters in spring turn to small black fruit in summer that can be used for jellies, juice and wine. The tree leaves start out green in spring turning burgundy red in summer and deep purple in fall. The upright oval canopy is great for creating shade, privacy and wind break. This tree adapts to most growing conditions and grows quite fast for your landscaping needs. Great tree for attracting birds to a yard and can be planted as a specimen, mass groups or shelterbelts. This tree does require maintenance in terms of pruning as the tree tends to sucker and is susceptible to black knot.
