Shadblow Serviceberry, also known as Amelanchier lamarckii F.G. Schroed, Juneberry Tree, Snowy Mespilus, and Apple Serviceberry, is a classy deciduous tree that produces color and charm all-year long. In spring, the first chromatic act begins. On the sunlit stage, the back-up singers, or rosy-pink leaves unfurl. Soon, after, the pearl-colored flowers, or star vocalists, gingerly step onto the stage and the concert begins. Finally, the wash of white takes its bows and exits. The back-up chorus, now taking their turn to shine, steps closer to the audience, and as summer commences and they start to entertain, the foliage turns from pink to chartreuse and then during the autumn, from chartreuse to scarlet. Finally, taking their leave in late fall, the troupe steps off stage to rest before doing it all over again. Shadberry Serviceberry, an elegant show requiring little to no attention, is the perfect addition for any person new to gardening who desires elegance and style.
