Description

Also known as Shadblow serviceberry, due to its bloom time occurring when the American Shad fish swims upstream to spawn. Fragrant white flowers decorate this deciduous large shrub, and ripen into crimson-purple berries that have a nutty, huckleberry flavor. The berries can be eaten raw or cooked in pies. Serviceberry is also known for its brilliant shades of orange in red in autumn.
