Zone 4b Canada. Beautiful burgundy leaves on mature branches and new shoots (growing from the top) have green leaves! Small dark berry-like fruits visible. Thanks in advance!

It looks like a purple leaf plum too, but it never flowered! Maybe the previous owners pruned it back too much for it to flower but would it still bear fruit without flowering first? It's got me stumped as to its species!

I agree. a red-leaved Chokecherry (Prunus virginiana, cultivar may be 'Canada Red, 'Schubert' or 'Schubert Select'; seedlings may also show the red-leaved trait). That is a most handsome tree. New growth starts green and turns red, the exact opposite pattern of so many other trees. The species, Prunus virginiana is native to most of southern Canada and the northern and central United States, with the subspecies Prunus virginiana var. demissa predominating in the western United States..
