Shrub Serviceberry vs. Tree Serviceberry did I make a mistake?

16 years ago

Yesterday I brought home a shrub/multistemmed serviceberry and I'm wondering if I should have bought the tree type they had.

I need a small tree to provide shade for the house. I like the form of the shrub type though and thought if it was wider and tall it would provide more shade.

Did I make a mistake? Should I return it for the tree type? This is going to be downslope from the house about 35-40' southwest from the house so I need it to reach that max 20' mark.

Any experience out there? I tried the net but most of the websites don't get that specific between the two.


P.S. Does one grow faster than the other?
