Amelanchier canadensis – Shadblow Serviceberry


A rare species in our region, known only from swampy areas in the Shawangunks, but adaptable to general landscape conditions. Like all Serviceberries, this small tree / large shrub has multi-season interest. Informal sprays of white flowers in spring are followed by small, dark purple, tasty sweet berries in summer – enjoy them or leave them for the birds. In the fall, foliage changes to yellows, oranges and, occasionally, a bright red.
