Description

New Product!

The Saskatoon Serviceberry is a beautiful, early flowering native shrub. Its leaves are medium green and deciduous, a stunning ornamental piece, with the added benefit of small edible berries. The Saskatoon Serviceberry tends to flower in early spring with striking and fragrant 5-petaled white flowers.

After the flowers have faded, small green berries appear, turning blue-purple when ripe.

The serviceberry fruit are small in size – a wonderful food source for birds and animals. When eaten fresh, the berries are tart and taste a lot like blueberries. Serviceberries are often used in preserves and in pies, and if you don’t pick them, the birds will love them!

Fairly easy to grow and long-lived, the Saskatoon Serviceberry shrub grows upright and prefers full sun and soil with good drainage. For proper pollination, plant two or more of the same variety.
