This compact form of serviceberry is commonly referred to as Saskatoon or Alder-leaved Serviceberry. It can be used effectively in shrub borders or woodland gardens where dark or shaded backdrops will highlight the form, flower, and fall color. Plant in average to moist soils in sun to part shade. Showy, white flowers bloom in early spring before the leaves emerge. An edible berry appears in early summer, attracting birds which devour the fruit. Fall color is outstanding in shades of yellow to red.
