  3. Joel Cherry Bush 1 pc.

    You can finally forget about your arborvitae and your boxwoods. Roberta’s 1 pc Joel Cherry Bush collection is exactly what a shrub should be – flowering in the spring, producing an abundance of juicy, anti-oxidant rich fruit in the late summer, and taking on gorgeous red tones in the autumn, we’ve never come across a bush that can elevate your garden’s landscape quite like this. Hybridized for over 25 years by famed breeder Dr. Meader of New Hampshire, no longer do you need a vast tract of space to grow a large, difficult to harvest cherry tree, because our Joel Cherry Bush grows only about 4’ tall and 3’ wide. It is the perfect size for a shrub and its habit resembles a flowering almond. And this self-fertile cherry bush doesn’t need brothers or sisters in the garden to produce fruit which means you can place them all over the yard on their own and still expect them to fruit. However, they are so striking in the landscape, you may want to plant a small grove of them.
