Amelanchier canadensis (juneberry, serviceberry)
Juneberry, serviceberry (3 gal, 3-4')'; 5 gal, 7-8')
Serviceberry is a deciduous, early-flowering, large shrub or small tree which typically grows 15-30' tall. Five-petaled, slightly fragrant, white flowers in drooping clusters appear before the leaves emerge in early spring. Medium to dark green leaves in summer change to orange-red in autumn. Flowers give way to small, round, green berries which turn red and finally mature to a dark purplish-black in early summer. Edible berries resemble blueberries in size and color and are used in jams, jellies and pies. The berries are a tasty treat for birds. Good for naturalized areas, in shady places, and along streams. Does well in average to wet soils. Serviceberry can be a host for the cedar-apple rust and do not plant it near a cedar if you wish to avoid the rust.
