Common Chokecherry
Prunus virginiana
This tree unexpectedly showed up in the yard. I had to identify it. But was very happy to find it. Originally, I wanted to plant a chokecherry and pin cherry. I decided against it because I was afraid the japanese beetles would demolish it every year. But for some reason, they seem to not be interested in this volunteer chokecherry.
