    5yr Native Tree Challenge: Kanorin's Amelanchier arborea (downy serviceberry)

    I collected this tree in the Ozark "mountains" this winter (February 2022). Didn't know the species at first, but it had a great base and really neat craggy bark down at the bottom. Here is a picture with the roots as I was potting up in Feb. Got some really strong growth so far - May 2022
