Think gorgeous, small, evergreen tree to 10-20' tall and wide with shiny, dark green leaves. These are cherries, blooming in late spring in tall racemes of white, fragrant flowers. Purple-red berries ripen to black in autumn -- bitter so best left to birds. Can be grown as a large, multi-stemmed shrub. Sun to part shade with normal summer water to establish. Frost hardy in USDA zone 7.
