Height: 20′-25′ Spread: 20′-25′. An exciting and beautiful red leafed Chokecherry which doesn’t sucker. We found it over 15 years ago and every plant we ever made from it remained sucker free…Thus it was named ‘Sucker Punch’. The tree is vigorous, and has a rounded growth habit. It’s foliage is at first green which changes to a deep purple as the season progresses. It has clusters of bright white fragrant flowers in late spring followed by dark purple chokecherries in mid August which are relished by birds. This tree has the potential to replace the Canada Red Chokecherry in the nursery trade, especially for those who don’t want the maintenance issues of removing numerous suckers each and every year. Full sun. Zone 3.
