Black cherry is a large, native tree found in the Midwest and throughout the eastern United States. The showy white flowers appear as pendulous clusters in early spring, followed by dark, pea-sized fruits in late summer. The mature bark is dark and scaly, often flipping up on the edges.
The black cherry’s fragrant flowers provide pollen and nectar for countless honeybees and native pollinators. And while the tree’s leaves and twigs are poisonous to domestic grazing animals, white-tailed deer and other wild mammals browse on black cherry without suffering any ill effects.
