Q

I had three Canadian Red Chokecherry (prunus virginiana L.) planted Oct 2007; 1 1/2" caliper, 13' tall. This spring, the leaves were a solid green; now they they are turning a purplish red. Is this normal?

Answer(s)

A

That kind of chokecherry usually (always?) does that. It is in its genetics.  I don't know that it has a purpose, so I can't say why.
