Introducing the National Audubon Society line of native plants and trees that are specifically selected to help birds and wildlife in your area! One of the best flowering and berry-producing must-haves for your birds is the Audubon® Native Downy Serviceberry Tree (Amelanchier arborea)!

Spring starts the show with a cloud of gorgeous white blossoms! The snowy, lightly scented flowers are a vital nectar source for pollinators! Also known as the June Berry, you and your feathered friends will enjoy a juicy June crop of red to blue-black berries amid the light green, lightly toothed foliage!

Large multi-stemmed native trees with light, airy branching structure, the fine-textured foliage becomes a brilliant fall display of reds, oranges and yellows! Sometimes known as Shadbush, the Downy Serviceberry is named for its silvery ‘downy’ foliage when it first emerges in spring.

Planting and Application:

You’ll see a wide variety of local and migrating birds come to visit the feast your tree produces! Insectivorous birds receive food support as well because Downey is a Host for many butterfly and moth larvae, too!

Serviceberry are fantastic ornamental flowering trees and shrubs with incredible fall color. Casting dappled light shade, they are lovely anyplace in the front or back yard garden. Keep the lower limbs for a hedge and screening plant or 'limb-up' for a specimen tree!
