Wild Cherry (Prunus serotina) is native to North America although it is now cultivated in Europe. Wild Cherry is a member of the Rosaceae family. The deciduous tree has creamy-white flowers, a purple-black fruit, and aromatic, highly-prized bark. The stem bark has been used for medicinal purposes. Wild Cherry contains prunasin, a cyanogenic glycoside, which combat spasms in the broncial passageway and relieve coughs. It has been used for broncitis, cough, and indigestion. It is a common ingredient in cough syrups because of sedative, expectorant, astingent, and antitussive effects.
