The Schubert Cherry, like all black chokecherries thrive in a whole whack of soils and environments. The new foliage starts out green but then turns to a wine-red in the summer and a dark purple by the fall.
Because the Schubert Cherry is also shade tolerant it can be grown as a contrast plant in the shade of larger trees.
The black cherries are bird magnets and attract a wide variety of sparrows, chickadee's and other songbirds. Fallen berries however stain patios, walkways and decks and therefore should not be grown as shade trees for these types of features.
