Amur Chokecherry (Prunus Maackii) 20 seeds (#489)

One of the best small deciduous trees for year-round display, this native of Northeast Asia is prized for its polished, flaking, golden-brown bark, its compact upright habit, and its clustered white early-spring flowers. The toothed, oval, medium-green leaves turn yellow in fall. Small black cherry-like fruits are sometimes produced in summer.
This hardy and adaptable tree does best in full sun and well-drained soil. It fares poorly in areas with mild winters. Like many ornamental cherries, it is relatively short lived. Plant it where it will be seen and appreciated at all seasons, such as near a walkway, entry, or kitchen window. (Info Source: Learn2Grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Soak the seeds in a bowl of cool water overnight. Lay the seeds on a flat surface to dry for several hours.
2. Stratify seeds in a plastic bag full of moist sand inside the refrigerator for 90 days. Keep the sand barely moist during the cold stratification period.
3. Sow the seeds the following spring once outdoor temperatures rise above 65F (+18C) during the day and 48F (+8C) at night. Or sow indoors in the propagator or pots
4. Prepare a pot for each seed. Fill 8-inch plastic pots with garden soil taken from the bed where the trees will eventually be planted. Sow one seed in each pot at a depth of 1 inch.
5. Water the seeds to a depth of 3 inches after planting them. Maintain moisture at a 3-inch depth during the germination process.
6. Place the pots outdoors in a sheltered spot where they will be exposed to direct sun in the morning and afternoon. Protect the seeds from direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day since the soil will warm too quickly and dry out.
7. Watch for sprouting one month after sowing. Maintain the same light and moisture conditions provided to the seeds during germination until they grow to 4 inches in height.
8. Plant the seedlings into a sunny, sandy bed at least 75 days before the first frost in autumn, or shelter the seedlings in a cold frame until the following spring if it is too late in the year for planting. (info source: eHow.com)
