  • Description

  • Notes

Regent Serviceberry is a selection of Saskatoon Serviceberry exhibiting larger and heavier fruit set. Large, white flowers appear in April or May before the leaves emerge completely. The edible fruit is blueberry-like in appearance, ripening in early summer. Edible out of hand, in preserves, or dried like raisins. Leaves are a dullish green, with yellow to red fall color. Grows about 4 to 6 feet tall and wide; an ideal height for a hedge or screen.
Grows in well drained soils in full sun to light shade. Adaptable to soil types, including sandy, loamy, or clay soils. Grows in acid, neutral, and alkaline soils. Best fruit will occur with regular watering, but it is drought tolerant. Does not require a pollinator.
