Serviceberry Amelanchier Canadensis - Go native with our brilliant and easy to grow Serviceberry Canadensis. It is also known as Juneberry, shadbush, shadblow and May cherry. Serviceberry trees can be grown as a multi-stemmed shrub or small tree that grows to 20 to 30 foot height range with a 10 to 15 foot spread. The beautiful flowers are plentiful, fragrant, and grouped in showy white clusters. They flower the earliest of the flowering trees and the fall foliage is a brilliant orange-yellow to red.
The berries of the Serviceberry Trees are edible and tasty and ripen in June. They are a good source of iron and copper. Native Americans ate the berries raw or dried them into loaves for later use in soups and stews, or mixed with meat and fat for travel food. They also used the wood for arrows, spears, and crosspieces for canoes. The juice of the berries was used as a dye. The berries are used today in jams, jellies, and wines.
A very adaptable plant, Serviceberry may be found from southern Alaska south to California and east to Alberta. It is found southward at the east part of its range through the Dakotas, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. Planting zones 3 to 7.
