Viability of wild black cherry tree in zone 9
O.K. We are trying to plant for wildlife instead of using commercial seeds and the like. We need a small fruit tree, of less than 20 feet. Many bird sites recommend wild black cherry but they all seem to grow only as far south as zone 6.
Can anyone suggest small fruit trees (non-citrus) that will provide wild food for our feathered friends. Nuts and seeds are taken care of with the neighbors pecan tree and wild millet, safflower and nyer that we allow to grow.
Suggestions would be appreciated. As a kid in south Florida we used to have mulberry trees but I'm not sure if they would grow up hear.
