This deciduous, multi-stemmed shrub or small tree normally reaches about 20 feet tall. As the common name "juneberry" suggests, this species produces a delicious edible fruit in early summer. It can be eaten raw, or used in jellies, jams, and pies. In spring, this species displays small white flowers that usually bloom sometime in April. This particular cultivar boasts a brilliant orange-red fall color in autumn.
