Light and airy by nature, Allegheny Serviceberry was made for gardens (and gardeners) that don't take themselves too seriously. Frothy white flowers erupt in early spring, much to the delight of the first pollinators of the year. Glossy leaves emerge later and flutter in the breezes that blow. Songbirds swoop in for the juicy blue-black fruits as soon as they are ripe. And sizzling red-orange fall color makes a joyous spectacle. Add Allegheny Serviceberry to informal mixed borders, transitional areas near woodlands, children's play spaces, native plant gardens, even large containers! Evergreen companions provide a nice counterpoint.
Serviceberry may not be a household word, but this Tree is more common than you think. There are species of Serviceberries that are native to every state of the Union except for Hawaii. In some areas, they are called Shadbush, because they bloom with the spawning of the shad fish. They are also known as Juneberries for the period when you should look for their sweet fruit. Allegheny Serviceberry grows wild from Minnesota to the eastern coast of Canada and south to Kansas, Alabama, and Maryland. It typically becomes a shrubby, multi-stemmed Tree.
Don't let the birds have all the fun! Grab some Allegheny Serviceberry fruits for your morning cereal. These blueberry-like morsels are a delightful seasonal treat that you won't find at the grocery store. Plus, they're loaded with vitamin C and valuable antioxidants!
How to Grow
Fall color on the Allegheny 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. Keep trimmers and other lawn equipment away from the trunk, as the bark of Allegheny Serviceberry -- like all Serviceberries -- is thin and vulnerable to damage.
