Shadbush, smooth (Amelanchier laevis)


Delicate white flowers cover the tree before leaves emerge, a very welcome sight after a long winter. After flowering, it forms red fruits that ripen into purple in June and July. Berries were traditionally used for pies and jellies. Taller (25 to 40’) than Juneberry (Amelanchier canadensis) with sweeter berries. The purple-to-bronze color of the emerging leaves in spring may the only obvious key to identity. This lovely tree also offers dramatic orange to red fall color.
