Chokecherry - Prunus virginiana var. virginiana
Variety virginiana of this widespread species ranges from west to east of the Rocky Mountains and north into Canada as far as Labrador and Newfoundland. It grows in disturbed sites alongside woods and roadsides, as well as streambanks, hillsides, and canyons. The leaves are usually widest above the middle, with the length less than two times the width. The flowers are borne in four-inch racemes, shorter than variety demissa, and the petals are smaller as well. The flowers open after the leaves. The fruits are red to black. The two varieties overlap in the West and British Columbia.
