Amelanchier canadensis

Shadblow, or Shadbush, Serviceberry is either a large shrub or a small tree. It produces small, pinkish-white blowers around the same time that cherry trees bloom. It is of a multi-stemmed, suckering habit, occurring naturally in wet sites, bogs, and swamps. It is very striking in the fall when its leaves turn orange. *Deer Seldom Browse*
