Peraphyllum ramosissimum | Squaw-apple is one of the many versatile native shrubs named in honor of Native American women. This resourceful plant has linear shiny green leaves, white apple-like flowers followed with little, yellow apples in late summer. However, the apples are more decorative than tasty for humans. A highly ornamental native shrub to use in shrub and perennial borders. Trim in early spring to remove broken branches and maintain the upright spreading form.
