Wild Cherry Bark
Wild Cherry Bark (Prunus serotina)
Don’t approach a wild cherry tree expecting to be greeted with plump and juicy fruits of the perfectly pickable variety, and you won’t be disappointed. Unlike its domestic cousin, wild cherry imparts the wild within it to the wild within us, revving our inner landscapes with remembrance of our once-feral nature. Her bittersweet, almond-scented skin – isn’t that what tree bark is, after all – is gnarled and scarred with lenticels, which tell her life story if you look closely.
Do we sound like we’re beating around the berry bush? Wonder why we’re talking plant-personalities instead of what’s good for your aching back? We have to speak in riddles to comply with FDA guidelines. So open another browser – or even a BOOK! – to research physiological usage. We’ll be right here waiting with whatever herbal products you need!
