Amelanchier alnifolia 'Smokey'

The 3/4 inch, blue-black fruit is sweet and considered the most highly-flavored serviceberry. The very productive plant can be trained as a multi-stemmed bush or small 12 foot tree. Plant it 10 feet apart, or 4 feet apart in hedge.

These very winter hardy plants — also known as Saskatoons — make attractive ornamental shrubs or hedges and produce delicious edible fruit. Developed in Alberta and grown commercially in Canada, this tasty blueberry-size fruit is high in Vitamin C and great for eating fresh or making pies. Plants are pretty in all seasons, with attractive white flowers in spring and bright yellow foliage in fall. Train them as single- stemmed trees or let them sucker and become multi-stemmed bushes or edible hedges. Plants tolerate a variety of soils, but prefer a neutral or slightly acid pH. They are self fertile and long-lived.
