The graceful multi-stemmed habit of shadblow serviceberry, white spring flowers, edible summer fruits and bright fall foliage brings much to the landscape. A native of the eastern North America, it is a large deciduous shrub or small tree that spreads by suckers and naturally resides in wetlands, such as bogs or swamps, though it is also commonly found in moist woods and stream sides. It is very hardy and many cultivated varieties exist for garden culture. Its berry-like summer fruits are edible and used to make preserves and pies.
The simple green leaves of shadblow are oval with finely serrated edges. When they first emerge they are woolly and whitish and turn deep green by late spring, losing most of their wooly hairs. Small showy white or palest pink flowers are held in clusters and appear in spring before the leaves emerge. The bee-pollinated blooms are followed by edible berries that turn from red to deep purplish black. They are flavorful and much sought after by wildlife as well as people. Cool autumn days turn the leaves shades of yellow and red, giving the overall plant canopy a look of a well-colored peach.
