"Unlike the rest of the plant, which is poisonous, the cherries are edible, although rather bland and with a somewhat astringent flavour compared to the fruit of apricots, true cherries, plums, and peaches, to which it is related."

What tree is this?

I once visited a posh stately home.

In a very old urn they had planted Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea"

It looked really good!

'Michael Lindsey' - Very fragrant red-brown flowers. Habit is dense,   compact and rounded (6' to 10' tall). Excellent shiny, dark green foliage and   golden yellow fall color. Considered the finest red-flowered form.
