Allegheny Serviceberry

Out of stock

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.
