Escarpment Cherry
Rosaceae Prunus serotina

This cherry is a large tree to almost 100 feet. The leaves turn yellow in the fall and stand out in the landscape or woodland. Native to the Texas Hill country, the cherry is usually found in creek bottoms and the surrounding hillsides. White flowers on 3 inch drooping stems cover the tree in the spring. The dark red ripe fruit is small but is used by wildlife for food in the late summer. Protect young trees from browsing deer.
