        Utah Native Plants | Chokecherry with Berries

        Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) is usually found along streams or on moist slopes at 4,500 to 9,000 feet. It is an important food source for many animals, including grouse and bighorn sheep. It was named chokecherry for the bitter taste of the berries, though it has been widely used for jams and juice. The image is drawn from the collection of Utah Native Plants contributed by the Red Butte Garden and Arboretum, University of Utah.
