Serviceberry – A Genus of Roughly 20 Deciduous Shrubs

Why Serviceberry (Amelanchier Spp.)?

Amelanchier, also known as serviceberry, sugarplum, Juneberry, wild-plum, or chuckley pear, is a genus of roughly 20 deciduous-leaved shrubs belonging to the rose family. The tree is indigenous to the temperate parts of the Northern Hemisphere and grows best in environments that have undergone early succession. The fruit resembles a berry but is really a pome. It matures from red to purple to almost black, has a diameter of 5–15 millimeters, and may range from tasteless to delicious.

The fruit of several species is delicious when eaten raw, with a sweetness that is highly enhanced by the almond-like flavor of the seeds, often used to make pies, jams, muffins, and wine.

Various birds and small animals favor the tiny, edible fruit, including the tufted titmice, northern cardinals, American goldfinch, brown thrashers, Carolina chickadees, blue jays, and American robins.

The wood is dark in color, very dense, and has a fine texture. The sapwood has a lighter tint than the heartwood, which has a reddish-brown coloration, used to make tool handles and rods for fishing.

Pollination Information

Pollination of Saskatoon Serviceberry Tree (18-24 Inches) (Amelanchier spp.):

Serviceberry flowers are hermaphroditic, meaning they have both male and female reproductive parts. The flowers are insect-pollinated, attracting bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The sweet, purplish-black berries that follow are a valuable food source for birds and small mammals. The berries are not only delicious for wildlife but also for human consumption, making them a popular choice for jams, pies, and other culinary delights. With its attractive flowers, colorful fall foliage, and wildlife-friendly berries, Serviceberry is an excellent addition to native and ornamental landscapes alike.



It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
