Plant Identification – Chokecherry


As requested I am re-submitting a close up photo of the plant
I am trying to identify.


Thank you for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners

The piece you are holding looks similar to a chokecherry  (Prunus virginiana)

The drooping racemes of flowers and alternate leaves narrows it down to a chokecherry  (Prunus virginiana)

This you tube video by Pualani Derman, Instructor of Natural Resources Technology at Mt. Hood Community College. provides detail on the chokecherry  Prunus Virginiana

Do contact us with new photos of the plant if it does not have small cherries later on in the summer.
