Additional Information: Also called common serviceberry or juneberry. Early flowering shrub/small tree has five-petaled showy white flowers that emerge before leaves in early spring. Young leaves are covered with soft, woolly hairs that disappear as the leaf matures. Edible berries mature from green to red to dark purple-black in early summer and are often used in jams, jellies and pies. Works well in shrub bordered, woodlands, naturalized or native gardens, and along streambanks and ponds. 

At least 40 bird species and several dozen mammal species eat the fruit
of the Amelanchier genus. Mammals that use common serviceberry include
squirrels, chipmunks, mice, voles, foxes, black bears, and elk
