Shrubby Tree Heralds Spring

The Serviceberry is a popular ornamental shrub prized for its spring/fall color and sweet summer berries.  It would look great in your naturalized garden or in front of some larger plantings to highlight its form and colors
 
Your Serviceberry will be one of the first plants you notice in the spring.  While the rest of your plants are still slumbering, the Serviceberry will burst forth in color.  Before its leaves even begin to appear, its 5-petalled clusters of white flowers will stand in sharp contrast to the browns and greys of your transitioning landscape. 

You’ll enjoy watching the flowers give way to the small green berries as they progress from green to red, and eventually transform into a deep purple.  The dark gems are ready to enjoy straight from the small shrubby tree in the early summer.
 
The Serviceberry is a shrubby, multi-stemmed shrubby tree that grows up to 15-25 feet with an equal spread, so it will fit anywhere.

It can be left as a multi stemmed shrub or trimmed into a small tree. It’s tolerant of a wide range of soils and love full to part sun. 

The 3-inch long dark green leaves fill out your tree, softly fuzzy at first and later glossy and smooth.  Those same leaves will turn a delightful reddish-orange in the fall.
 
Serviceberries look like large, dark blueberries and taste similar, but with an almond-like accent.  They are commonly eaten raw or used in various jams and pies. WIldlife love them.
