Cherry, Indian

Indian Cherry, Native Buckthorn (Frangula caroliniana

What a fantastic plant! Lush foliage, striking late-summer fruit, and brilliant fall color are the ornamental features of this small native tree. The Indian Cherry tolerates difficult growing sites extremely well, and birds love the fruit. The flowers may be visually unremarkable, but you will know when the plant is in bloom! The area around the tree buzzes with activity as each pollinator rushes in for his share.

Excellent as a specimen anchoring small shrubs and perennials, the Indian Cherry should not be crowded with other plants of the same size. You do not want this one hidden in the landscape! Its shade tolerance also makes it useful in a woodland garden. Plant it with the knowledge that you are contributing to a complex, beneficial biological community.
