This is the earliest blooming Juneberry, and the white flowers tend to stay on longer than other Juneberries, particularly when weather is cooler in early April. I have seen blooms last for only a couple of days in 80 degree weather. Fruit is edible by human ... s and wildlife in June. Excellent fall color of red, yellow, and orange. Best placed in a shrub border. Bark is gray and lightly striped with white. Does not perform well in wet soils. Juneberry is shade-tolerant but does best if it receives at least 4 hours of sun per day.
