Planting for Birds – Serviceberry

Last year, we planted a Smooth Serviceberry – Amelanchier laevis – in our backyard. It is also known as a shadbush or juneberry. When in doubt, always check the Latin name on a tag.
This particular serviceberry is a shrub and ideal for small yards. Its white flowers are blooming right now. The berries are popular with birds and the coppery red leaves add great color to any fall yard.
