AMELANCHIER ALNIFOLIA, ZONES 3 TO 8

The Saska­toon ser­vice­berry is an or­na­men­tal shrub that pro­duces white flow­ers in spring and pur­ple-black berries in early sum­mer. This plant usu­ally grows 3 to 8 feet tall and re­quires full sun or light shade.

Why we love it: The berries are tasty in pies and muffins—if you can beat the robins to them.

Host to: Cana­dian tiger swal­low­tail and pale swal­low­tail
