The Catalina Cherry (Prunus ilicifolia ssp. 47701) is an evergreen shrub native to California and northern Mexico. It is a member of the rose family and is closely related to the almond tree. It is a medium-sized shrub with a rounded form and a dense canopy of dark green leaves. It produces small white flowers in the spring, followed by small, bright red fruits in the summer. The fruits are edible and can be used to make jams, jellies, and preserves. The Catalina Cherry is a popular landscape plant due to its attractive foliage and fragrant flowers.
The Catalina Cherry is best grown in full sun and well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant and prefers a slightly acidic soil. It can be pruned to keep it in a desired shape and size, and it can also be trained to grow as a small tree. It is an ideal choice for hedges, screens, and windbreaks. It is also a good choice for wildlife gardens, as the flowers attract butterflies and the fruits attract birds.
