Looking for a versatile, native species that can be used for a variety of purposes? Look no further than Prunus emarginata, also known as Bitter cherry or Oregon cherry. This species of Prunus is native to Western North America and can be found from British Columbia all the way down to California and Arizona. It thrives in recently disturbed areas, open woods, and nutrient-rich soil. Did you know that the leaves can be used to make a green dye? Or that the fruit can be made into a dark grey to green dye? The bark is incredibly strong and flexible, making it perfect for basket weaving, while the wood is close-grained and often used for furniture. Plus, it's an excellent fuel. Medicinally, Native tribes have used the bark for poultices and infusions. Although the cherries may not be palatable to humans, they provide important forage for animals, especially birds. So whether you're a basket weaver, woodworker, or just looking for a reliable native shrub, Prunus emarginata is definitely worth considering.
