Description

This member of the rose family is occasionally encountered in mountainous regions throughout much of California. The overall form is upright and rounded. The dark oval leaves contrast well against the gray-burgundy bark. In spring, white flowers of about an inch in diameter cover pallid serviceberry. These give way to dark berries in late summer and fall. Pallid serviceberry is adaptable to a variety of soil types and sun exposures. In hot interior sites, pallid serviceberry may benefit from some protection from the afternoon sun. Little water is needed once established. Deciduous.
