Serviceberry Tree — Amelanchier arborea

Dense with star-shaped, white, fragrant flowers, the Serviceberry is almost as beautiful as the dogwood and blooms around the same time. That would be between March and April.  It is not fussy about the type of soil and can do reasonably well in ground that is poor. However, it much prefers soil to be well-drained, well-aerated and acidic. The serviceberry needs medium watering and not much maintenance. It is said to be not fond of pruning, but suckers can be removed in the winter to help the tree look more tree-like. Best of all, it produces edible fruit and delivers it earlier than a lot of other trees. They begin as green berries that deepen to red and are purplish black by early summer. These berries resemble and are used much like blueberries. Wildlife adore the berries, so the gardener should be careful to pick some before they’re all gone!
