Introducing the Carolina Buckthorn, also known as Indian Cherry, a deciduous shrub or small tree that boasts bright, shiny green leaves and edible, juicy fruits. Native to a wide range of areas, including New York, Nebraska, Mexico, and Florida, this plant thrives in a variety of habitats such as woodland streams, open wooded hillsides, thickets, and limestone areas. Despite its name, this thornless shrub or tree can reach up to 30 feet tall, and its shiny dark green foliage is a striking feature. The flowers are small and pale yellow-green, appearing in leaf axils in late spring. The fruit of the Carolina Buckthorn ripens in late summer, first a bright red and then turning black as it matures. Moreover, this plant is infrequently browsed by white-tailed deer and is sparingly consumed by songbirds. If you're looking for a hardy, attractive plant that can ease your hunger pangs, the Carolina Buckthorn might be the perfect fit for your garden!
