12-18" tall x 4-6' wide (cutting propagated). Jutting up from the plains of northeastern Colorado, the Pawnee Buttes are a majestic sight. This starkly beautiful land is also a place of extreme weather and growing conditions. Discovered growing there, Pawnee Buttes® Sand Cherry is the unique groundcover variety selection of Sand Cherry. Enjoy it for its tough-as-nails constitution, groundcover growth habit, a profusion of fragrant late spring flowers and fabulous glossy foliage. Fall turns the foliage a beautiful mahogany-red. Grows rapidly with modest supplemental irrigation and thrives in lean well-drained non-clay soils. A 2000 Plant Select® introduction. Cut back in spring after blooming is over, leaving 2-3 leaf buds on each branch.
