Canadian Serviceberry Tree: Amelanchier canadensis - 20 Inch Pot - 9 Foot Tall
Amelanchier canadensis is a deciduous tree with beautiful white flowers in spring, followed by edible berries and vibrant fall foliage. It is a versatile tree that attracts birds and pollinators.
Caring for Amelanchier canadensis, commonly known as Canadian Serviceberry or Juneberry, involves providing it with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. This deciduous shrub or small tree thrives in full sun to partial shade and prefers well-draining soil. Plant it in a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged, especially during the plant's establishment period. Once established, Canadian Serviceberry is relatively drought-tolerant. Mulching around the base of the plant helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Prune the shrub in late winter or early spring to remove any dead or crossing branches and maintain a desirable shape. This plant is generally resistant to pests and diseases. Enjoy the beautiful spring blooms and delicious edible berries that follow. With proper care, your Amelanchier canadensis will enhance your landscape with its charming flowers, colorful autumn foliage, and seasonal fruit.
