Adaptation and Soil
Serviceberry is adapted to most soils, even clay. Tolerates moderate shade and drought.
Space this tree 6-8 feet apart in most plantings. Space determines how soon they grow together, and they are not negatively affected by being close.
One- or two year-old, bare-root seedlings, (10 to 14 inches tall) are used in conservation plantings. Controlling competing vegetation is critical in establishment.
Various foliar fungal diseases (rust, leaf spot, blight, pwdery mildew) and insects (scale, leaf miner, sawflies) may affect the platns, but the damage is only cosmetic. Overall health of the shrub is generally unaffected.
