Maybe There Should Be an Amelanchier Celebration?
Blooming spectacularly right now along with the much-celebrated cherry trees is a North American native beauty, the Amelanchier. Its blooms are at least as lovely a sight as the decorative cherry trees, but unlike those trees it will also produce some delicious berries. Native, decorative bark, plus delicious fruit for people in the know and birds: what's not to love about the Amelanchier?
