One of the largest of the native Serviceberries, the Downy features showy, 5-petaled, fragrant white flowers in drooping clusters appearing just before the leaves come out.
The flowers give way to berries -- Juneberries -- that mature to a dark purple in early summer. They’re like blueberries and often used in jams and pies.
