Not available for the Early Order Sale
This is an upright, columnar, compact, self-fertile shrub that’s covered with white blooms in spring followed by small purple-blue berries for eating fresh or in pies and jellies. Its green foliage turns a golden to orange color in autumn. This is a multi-tasking shrub. We see its uses in windbreaks, creating bird habitat, a small screening around patios or for food for us humans. We continue to be impressed by serviceberries and their western heritage in dealing with our soils and climate and Standing Ovation delivers.
