Picture of Idesia Polycarpa Kentucky Fry

The Wonder Tree is particularly valued for the pendulous clusters of red berries that decorate the bare branches in winter. It is a lovely shade or specimen tree with inconspicuous yet fragrant flowers in summer, thick heart shaped green leaves and just a nice structure. Self-fertile cultivar.

Idesia are dioecious which means there are separate male and female trees and these need to cross pollinate for berry production. 'Kentucky Fry' is a self-fertile cultivar which will produce berries without a companion tree.
