Comments: A spectacular cherry when it flowers in winter, usually in February in zone 8. Flower buds can stand a light freeze without damage. Berries turn dark red when ripe in April. Cedar waxwings and other birds consume the berries eagerly. When the seeds fall into some cover, lawns or flower beds, they will germinate the next spring and are easily transplanted. If stored, they must be moist cold stratified for 2-3 months for germination to occur.
