Downy Serviceberry

Amelanchier arborea

Native

Downy serviceberry is a small tree to large shrub, typically growing 5-12 meters tall. It is native to North America and is often found in southwestern Ontario. It prefers dry sites in fields, woodlands and clearings, or on rocky bluffs. Downy refers to the hairy leaves of younger trees. The fruits are important food for wildlife. Difficult to distinguish between different serviceberries because they often hybridize.

Fruit/Seed

Dark reddish-purple, tiny, berry-like apples.

Bark

Bark bluish-grey and smooth. Stems usually clumped.

Flower

White with 5 narrow petals. Forms clusters at branch tips. Flower in April-May.
