Serviceberry tree?

12 years ago

Hi all,

I am an avid naturalist and birdwatcher, who is just starting to landscape his yard. I have a great list of plants for my hummingbird/butterfly garden for next spring. I am now interested in serviceberry trees for my front yard as an alternative to disease prone flowering dogwoods that will provide food and cover for my next target group of wildlife: songbirds! Do birds really go crazy for them? When do they fruit? Which varieties fruit and flower the best? Any shared experience with these trees would be greatly appreciated!
