History:
Serviceberries are grouped into the Rosaceae to include about 25 species native to the north temperate zones, mostly in North America. The A. x grandiflora group of hybrids are derived from crosses of two native species: A. laevis and A. arborea.
Lore:
Edible berries were first relished by Native Americans who also considered them medicinal. The fruit was readily harvested by settlers who cooked them into jams, jellies and pies.
