The Story

Serviceberries are delightful little trees that are native to nearly every state of the Union (sorry, Hawaii). They light up wild spaces with their flowers and fall color and provide important nourishment to wildlife. Spring Flurry® Allegheny Serviceberry was introduced by Keith Warren of J. Frank Schmidt Nursery of Boring, Oregon. He was looking for a tree that was faster growing, more upright, and narrower than was typical for the species. In 1990, Warren examined over one thousand seedlings to find the one that was the tallest and straightest of the bunch. He patented the tree in 2003.

The Details

The birds are fond of the sweet berries of Spring Flurry® Serviceberry, but you may want to keep the fruits for yourself. They taste a little like blueberries, and like blueberries, they’re packed with healthy antioxidants. Try them on your morning cereal or use them in pies, pancakes, preserves, muffins, or smoothies.

How to Grow

Fall color on the Spring Flurry® Serviceberry will be most intense in full sun, but the foliage quality will be best if the tree receives some shade during the hottest part of the day. The soil should be enriched with organic matter, moist but well drained. A generous layer of wood chips or shredded bark mulch will help to hold in moisture and moderate temperatures in the root zone. Irrigate with the Bower & Branch Elements™ Watering System and feed with Elements™ Fertilizer to get your tree off to a good start. Prune out suckers promptly if they do appear and keep trimmers and other lawn equipment away from the trunk, as the bark of Spring Flurry®—like all Serviceberries—is thin and vulnerable to damage.
