You may not have room for a mighty oak. An elm might be overwhelming. But surely there's a place in your yard for a Serviceberry. You may know it by other names; shad bush or juneberry are just a few of its aliases. Beyond that, It's either a very tall shrub or a multi-stemmed tree.
Growing up to 20 ft tall and 10 ft wide, in full sun to partial shade, it fits a variety of garden situations. It makes an especially attractive hedge.
This great native is adaptable and versatile with loads of interest; fuzzy gray new leaves, pretty white flowers, yellow to orange fall color and juicy fruit. Butterflies like it for the nectar and as a host plant for their larvae as well. You can even bake a pie if you can beat the birds.
