Explore the wonders of the Amelanchier arborea, commonly known as Downy Serviceberry. This North American native can reach up to 40 ft high, flaunting a robust bark that's smooth and gray, setting an impressive backdrop for its white blossoming flowers. Enjoy its distinct display of orange-yellow to reddish hues during the fall season. Its extensive root system plays a crucial role in erosion control, making it an ideal choice for planting on banks. Its wood, one of the heaviest in North America, is renowned for its close-grained, hard, tough, and highly elastic characteristics, making it perfect for crafting durable handles. Experience the allure of its ovate or elliptical leaves that emerge downy on the underside. Witness a stunning flower show that announces the arrival of spring; the Serviceberry impresses with white, monoecious flowers attracting bees for efficient pollination. Its summer-loving fruits, that resemble small apples, are a sweet treat for the local bird population.
