The Allegheny Serviceberry, Amelanchier laevis, is perfect for naturalistic plantings. This small, multi-stemmed, plant can be grown as a small tree or large shrub.
It blooms in early spring with petite, slightly fragrant, white flower clusters. The small purplish-blue fruit is delicious in pies and jams and very attractive to birds.
This serviceberry is easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It is tolerant of a somewhat wide range of soils, but prefers moist, well-drained loams. Allegheny Serviceberry makes an attractive understory tree for lawns, shrub borders, woodland margins or native plant areas. It has no serious insect or disease problems.
A great native tree for naturalizing, Allegheny Serviceberry is wonderful when mixed with conifers and hardwoods.
