Amelanchier canadensis, commonly called serviceberry, is a native, deciduous, large shrub or small tree which typically grows to 15-25' tall. Serviceberry features showy, slightly fragrant, white flowers in drooping clusters which appear before the leaves emerge in March and April. In late spring and early fall, flowers turn to small, green berries which deepen to red and finally mature to a dark purplish-black.
Amelanchier canadensis has wide light tolerance and tolerates salt and a variety of soil conditions, when provided with enough moisture; since serviceberry can tolerate such a wide range of conditions, it is a valuable addition to a variety of home garden environments. Amelanchier canadensis works well as a fruit specimen tree, but also for restoration projects, pollinator gardens, and naturalizing in a variety of locations.
