Prunus can be deciduous or evergreen trees or shrubs with showy flowers in spring, and often good autumn foliage colour. Some have edible fruit in autumn, and a few species have ornamental bark. ‘Morello’ is a dark red cherry that is ideal for canning, preserving and baking due to its tartness. Producing regular crops, this tree is self-fertile, cropping in the late summer. Its habit is compact, spreading, and hardy. Plant in full sun to partial shade in well-drained soil. Requires a sheltered location.
