        Utah Native Plants | Chokecherry with Flowers

        Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) is usually found along streams or on moist slopes at 4500 to 9000 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.
