About This Product

'Nuccio's Wild Cherry' bursts into bloom in late spring with an abundance of ruffled cherry-pink flowers. Its bright blossoms emerge in clusters and attract pollinators such as butterflies, hummingbirds and bees. Prized for its petite size, it grows as a dense shrub and works well in mixed borders, foundation plantings and low hedges. 'Nuccio's Wild Cherry' performs best in partial shade and well-drained, acidic soil and thrives in the landscape for years.
