AMELANCHIER

Commonly known as Alderwood service berry, Juneberry, Shadbush

All Flower MAR-APR

Genus of about 25 species of deciduous trees and shrubs mostly from moist woodland and stream banks in Europe, Asia and North America.

Hybrids of this shadberry, blooming when the fish run, are widely spread in the US and Europe.

The edible fruit, readily taken by birds, ranges from insipid to sweet and is flavoured of almond from its seeds.

When later flowering it is susceptible to fireblight, probably spread by bees from bramble and wild rose flowers.
