This serviceberry cultivar is a compact, deciduous, stoloniferous, early-flowering shrub which typically grows only 4-6′ tall. Features small, 5-petaled, showy, slightly fragrant, white flowers (3/4″ diameter) in clusters (racemes) which appear before the leaves emerge in early spring. Flowers give way to abundant, small, roundish, green berries which mature to a dark purple in early summer (typically July). Edible berries resemble blueberries in size and color and are often used in jams, jellies and pies. Finely toothed, rounded, dark green leaves change to variable shades of yellow and red in autumn. The species is commonly called Saskatoon serviceberry. It typically grows 10-18′ tall and is sometimes grown commercially for fruit production.
