The wild cherry is a popular ornamental choice for gardens, especially those who wish to attract wildlife. The spring flowers provide an early source of nectar and pollen for bees, while the cherries are eaten by birds including the blackbird and song thrush.
In Highland folklore, wild cherry had mysterious qualities and to encounter one was considered to be fortunate and fateful.
