Bird Cherry trees are suited to larger gardens, woodlands, and wet upland areas. Blooming in April, their fragrant flowers give way to bitter black fruits, a treat for wildlife. These trees tolerate exposure and elevation, making them valuable for various wildlife, including insects and birds.
Bird Cherry, scientifically known as Prunus padus, is a deciduous tree that can enhance the natural beauty of your outdoor space. It usually grows to a height of 15-40 feet (4.5-12 meters) and has a spread of 15-30 feet (4.5-9 meters). In the spring, it showcases clusters of fragrant white blossoms, followed by small dark fruits that birds love – a great way to identify it.
