Dwarf Bing Cherry

The tree arrived healthy and in beautiful shape. It was taller than I expected and healthier. I will definitely buy from them again!!!


This Bing is one of 4 trees/plants I purchased from RN that seemed dead on arrival or, alternatively, unable to withstand the transport and transplant. It saddens me. I've ordered over a dozen trees/plants from RN and the majority are doing well and adjusting to their new home so I guess this poor Bing is a case of "it is what it is"
