Amelanchier laevis

Common name: Allegheny Shadblow

Native plant

A very elegant Juneberry with may similarities to Amelanchier arborea, superficially at least. The white flowers bloom a little later than the other Juneberries and have a fuzzy appearance to them. I prefer the fruit of this plant over its relatives. They are larger, sweeter, and juicier and a suitable substitute for blueberries. The somewhat smaller stature and very nice spring flowers make this a perfect plant for smaller urban yards. You birders out there take note- the fruit of this plant brings in all manner of fruit lovers!
