Description :

This chokecherry cultivar (sometimes called purpleleaf chokecherry) is a deciduous, suckering tree or shrub with a pyramidal habit which grows 20-30′ tall. ‘Schubert’ is best known for its purple foliage: elliptic to obovate leaves (to 5″ long) emerge green in spring, gradually maturing to dark purple by early summer. White flowers in racemes in spring give way in summer to clusters of reddish fruit (1/3″ diameter cherries) which mature in fall to a dark purple. Fruit is very astringent, hence the common name. Fruit may be used in sauces, jellies and preserves, however. Fruits are attractive to wildlife.
