Prunus pensylvanica: Pin Cherry - for well drained sites in full sun. Delicate white flowers bloom in may, fine bright green foliage in summer, and red-orange fall color. Twigs are a bright red and bark matures to a nice copper. A fast grower. Keep it in full sun if you want it in the long term; as a nurse tree, I suspect it declines and dies in shade. Many songbirds relish the fruit. Ice damage is common.
Can you imagine a life without the sun? It is a new tomorrow, a light above human darkness. It is a guide, a gift. It gives life to the trees, which give life to us. We could not breathe without the sun.
Stark and rugged in the winter, the Kentucky Coffee Tree’s picturesque native, midwest look becomes tropical in appearance in the summer. Kentucky Coffee Tree features huge fans of doubly compound green leaves which emerge to cast filtered shade.
