Other names include Juneberry and Shadbush. A large shrub or small multi-stemmed tree and a fantastic alternative to invasive Bradford Pear. It is an understory tree, often found growing in clumps in wet areas, lowlands, and thickets, and grows 15 to 25 feet tall. In spring, the showy, fragrant flowers bloom in clusters before leaf out. The purple berry-like drupes follow and are attractive to wildlife and edible by humans. In fall, the leaves turn showy red and orange.
