Description

Prunus pumila, commonly called sand cherry, is a North American species of cherry that is widespread in eastern and central Canada from New Brunswick west to Saskatchewan and the northern United States. 

Prunus pumila is a deciduous shrub that grows to 0.61–1.83 metres (2–6 feet) tall. It forms dense clonal colonies by sprouts from the root system. The flowers are 15–25 millimetres (9⁄16–1 in) in diameter with five white petals. The edible fruit is a small cherry 13–15 mm (1⁄2–9⁄16 in) in diameter, ripening to dark purple in early summer. They are perfect for snacking or adding to your favorite recipes. Hardy to zone 2 and self-fertile, this plant prefers well-drained or sandy soil and can tolerate drought and strong winds.

The seeds are in very limited supply.

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Seeds per pack: 5  (previously 3)

Note: The seeds and leaves of prunus contain poisons. Do not eat them.

Germination: Start these seeds indoors right away for best germination rates.  Sow the seeds just under the surface of a seed-start mix, and water in. First keep them at room temperature for 4 months. This helps break the phytohormones which inhibit germination.  Then cover them with plastic to retain moisture, and then place in a fridge for 4 months. Be sure they stay lightly moist. Then bring them to approximately 21°C, 70°F for germination.
