Amelanchier laevis 'JFS-Arb'

Serviceberry, Spring Flurry®

A street tree Amelanchier! Exceptional tree form. A dominant central leader supports strongly upward-oriented scaffold branches. Pure white blooms smother a delicate latticework of twigs in spring. These give way to healthy green foliage that turns orange in the fall.

Our products are available for retail purchase only. Please call for availability as stock levels fluctuate throughout the season. We are unable to ship plants or other products.

The ripe berries are safe for human consumption and make delicious jam or pie. The flavor is somewhere between a blueberry, apple and sweet cherry. The berries also attract birds.

Serviceberry, Spring Flurry® Growing and Maintenance Tips

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
