Habitat: Montane on both sides of Continental Divide
Description: This tree is a common ornamental that may also be found in the wild. It can be identified by its dark reddish-brown bark with large powdery orange spots. The leaves are lance-shaped, gradually tapering towards a sharp tip. They have very fine teeth, and range from 7-10 cm in length. The flowers grow in a cluster of 5-7 at the end of 2 cm stalks. Each flower is approximately 1 cm across, and will be replaced by a sour cherry by mid-August.
