Prunus virginiana (Chokecherry) prefers open, moist areas with full sun to part shade. Does not do well on heavy clay soils. It is a good erosion control plant for riparian areas because it can form thickets and spread by rhizomes.
Seed treatment recommendations: A very high percentage of seed will germinate the first spring if cold/moist stratified for 2 to 3 months or immediately fall planted. A certain percentage of seed that does not germinate the first spring will germinate the following year or even later. Sow seed ¼ to ½” deep in prepared seedbeds or in natural soils.
