A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures - and that is the basis of all human morality.

Cherries & Plums

In addition to this you can have any number of hybrid plums.

In the works however are Nanking cherries, and the Romantic series of cherries from University of Saskatchewan.

All the cherries have a brief fling of flowers in the spring. Indeed they are one first shrubs in spring to bloom.
