     Canadian red cherry is a small tree sometimes grown as a tall shrub that is renowned for its succulent chokecherries. The deciduous tree grows up to 25 feet tall and features a vase-like form. Grown successfully in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 8, the attractive tree is a suitable choice for small gardens or areas where space is limited. The easy-to-grow tree livens up the landscape with its showy form and dense clusters of white flowers in spring.The new growth emerges as bright green then hardens off to dark purple and holds this beautiful color until late fall.
