Lamarcki Serviceberry

With bronze-colored oval leaves that turn red in the fall and abundant white star-shaped flowers that emerge in the spring, the deciduous Lamarcki serviceberry (also known as juneberry) provides plenty of seasonal interest. Bird-lovers appreciate that the tree's small red fruits, which follow the flowers, draw birds to it. The Lamarcki serviceberry will grow to 30 feet tall and 40 feet wide when planted in full or partial sun, and well-drained or moist soil.
