Allegheny Serviceberry

Allegheny Serviceberry

Amelanchier laevis 15-25' The most common Amelanchier in Maine.

The unique purplish-orange bronzed color of the unfolding leaves on this understory tree is a favorite spring sight. Pendulous white blossoms precede the young leaves and are followed by berries that ripen in midsummer. Purplish-black sweet berries good in pies, cobblers, jellies, jams, smoothies and cakes. Berries are about the size of a lowbush blueberry, or a bit larger, and seedier.

Referred to as Shad or Shadbush by old-timers because the blossoms coincide with the spring shad run in certain Maine streams.

Likes well-drained acid soils along the edge of fields, streams and roads. Considered to be self-fruitful but we recommend planting more than one for best fruit sets. Native midwest to eastern U.S. and Canada. Z2. Maine Grown. (1-3' bare-root plants)
