Happy Arbor Day to you too Kathleen. Planting a tree is the best and your little serviceberry will be a super good addition to your garden for the birds.


I love serviceberries! They are wonderful spring flowers and the fall color is lovely. I planted a chokeberry~Aronia arbutifolia. gail


I love these trees! I wish I had the space for one. I hadn't realized it was Arbor Day today. That would've been a great reason to plant shop, maybe I can make up for it tomorrow.


Kathleen girl !!!!!
You have "my" Autumn brilliance serviceberry now girl : )
You are going to love it .. even as a baby tree she flaunts those gorgeous coloured leaves in the Fall .. this is so nice to share another plat/tree ? .. we won't mention the Maypop right ? .. LOL
Congratulations on adopting a beautiful tree for your Arbor Day girl : )
PS .. do you get an actual holiday off for this celebration ?


We put two Amelanchier in the Learning Garden this spring. Nice plants. Glad you got one for your place.

Sweet Bay

I didn't buy a tree but I too am a fan of Serviceberries! They grow wild here. They're not the fanciest cultivars (for instance they almost never get fall color due to leaf spot), but so magical when they bloom. Great choice!


What lovely blossoms the serviceberry has! I hope you will be able to watch it bloom for many seasons to come.


I added one several years ago. They make a nice multi trunked tree to grow shade loving perennials beneath because they don't create dense shade. They do pretty well as under story trees here. Mine grows in he outer shade of a maple. The fruit is sweet if you can grab a few before birds finish them off:)


Good choice for Arbor Day.
