Nantucket Serviceberry

Arbor Walk #131

This shrub is quite rare, endemic to Maine, Massachusetts, and other isolated pockets along the East Coast from Nova Scotia to South Carolina. Its edible berries and pollen-tipped white flowers are notable characteristics of this plant, which inhabits sandy areas mainly along the coastline. However, it can also live inland, in sunny, well drained soils. The fruits of most Amelanchier plants are very popular with wildlife.
