This Missouri native tree offers edible small berry-like fruit, usually quickly eaten by birds, that changes color throughout the seasons. It starts out green, turns red, then blue-black in June. Also called Juneberries, they are similar in size and shape to blueberries and can be used to make jellies and jams. It has white flowers in Spring, a beautiful fall color, and grey bark in winter.
