amelanchier canadensis fruit & leaves

Shadblow Serviceberry (Amelanchier canadensis)

This early-flowering, large shrub or small tree, features showy, 5-petaled, slightly fragrant, white flowers in drooping clusters which appear before the leaves emerge in early spring. Flowers give way to small, round, green berries which turn red and finally mature to a dark purplish-black in early summer. Edible berries resemble blueberries in size and color and are used in jams, jellies and pies.
