Serviceberry (Amelanchier sp.)
Serviceberries can be delicious eaten directly from the tree and people often use them anyway blueberries are used. They can be put in pies, muffins, jams, or smoothies. In addition to being great for people, serviceberries also provide food to birds and wildlife and support pollinating insects. They are also host plants for various native butterflies and moths in Michigan, including the striped hairstreak, white admiral, viceroy, small-eyed sphinx moth and the blinded sphinx moth.
