Prunus Serotina, commonly called black cherry, wild cherry or wild rum cherry. It is one of the largest of the cherries, typically growing to 50-80’ less frequently to 100’ tall with a narrow-columnar to rounded crown. It is perhaps most noted for its profuse spring bloom, attractive summer foliage and fall color. Fragrant white flowers in slender pendulous clusters (racemes to 6” long) appear with the foliage in spring (late April-May). Flowers are followed by drooping clusters of small red cherries to 3/8” diameter that ripen in late summer to dark purple-black. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Best in moist, fertile loams in full sun.
