Amelanchier arborea

Downy service-berry

Amelanchier arborea is a small tree native throughout the southeast. It is found growing in a wide array of conditions- dry to wet soils, part-shade to sun. In the spring it produces white, fragrant, radial flowers that are characteristic of the rose family. The flowers turn into fruits as the season progresses. This impressive bloom makes Amelanchier arborea popular as a garden plant, while its ability to grow in various settings makes it well suited for restoration projects. The flowers of this tree are a big draw for pollinators in the spring, and the berries that come later attract small mammals and song birds.
