     Allegheny Serviceberry is closely related to the more common Downy Serviceberry, but two key differences prompted horticulturalist William Cullina to declare Allegheny "the tree Amelanchier of choice for gardens."


  •      New growth: Bronzy-purple, contrasting nicely with its large, white flowers
  •      Fruits: Among the most delicious of all the Serviceberries


     Allegheny blooms early, like Downy, but fade slightly sooner.  Likewise, its red to purple berries appear in early summer and either drop or are fully consumed by July.


     Fall color is excellent! :)
