Amelanchier And Grid

. Tagged with

This plant, German Felsenbirne, amelanchier ovalis, could be what is called serviceberry in English. However I’ve never seen fruits on one of these bushes, so it might be an urban hybrid, bred for early and rich blossoming but not carrying fruits to avoid delivery of food to birds and rats.
