I agree

Cinda, I see you have Serviceberry in your Plant List. Do you like it? Do they all get to tree size?

None of the serviceberry bushes I have grown have been trees , more like small lilacs. However I have seen some used in landscaping in town that are like small trees kinda like crabapple shaped and redbud size.
I do eat the berries and dry them for use in the winter ...if I can beat the birds to them.

That size sounds good. I didn't want anything too tall. I want them for the berries for the birds ... and for us too. I'm glad to know you like them. I can't recall as I've ever tasted them. Thanks for the input.

BTW, how quickly do they grow?

Our native serviceberry in the Pacific NW is A. alnifolia, common name Saskatoon.

Not sure how to attach a link, I copied it here, is that all one needs to do?
