Amelanchier laevis, more commonly known as the Alleghany Serviceberry or Smooth Shadbush, is an aesthetically pleasing tree that is native to the eastern U.S. and is also commonly used in Europe. It is both an ornamental and functional plant offering sweet purple-black fruit that is a favorite among birds. Moreover, the fruit is edible for humans too; it can be eaten raw or cooked and is rich in iron and copper.
Interestingly, the bark of this tree can be used to create herbal medicine beneficial for expectant mothers. This tree grows up to a height of 30 ft. It can grow well in semi-shade or full sun, demanding moist soil conditions. This bird-friendly plant bears white flowers that bloom from April through May, with its seeds ripening from June to July.
Amelanchier laevis can be densely planted, ranging from 700 to 1200 plants per acre, promising an attractive vista. It is a deciduous tree which is not frost tender and hardy up to zone 4. Besides its natural beauty, the Serviceberry's admirable resilience to different soil types and weather conditions makes it a diverse choice for your garden!
