Domesticated for fruit production, Amelanchier Alnifolia, also known as Serviceberry, is a deciduous, upright shrub with four seasons of interest. In mid spring, compact clusters of white flowers emerge just before the leaves. Attractive to pollinators, they are followed by small, sweet, blue berries in early summer. The foliage of small, light green, oval leaves, turn to brilliant shades of orange and red in autumn. Remaining attractive, even after the leaves drop, thanks to its elegant habit and light grey bark. Serviceberry is attractive as an ornamental shrub, or may be trimmed as a pretty hedge.
