Allegheny serviceberry Another serviceberry not too different from the other species, especially Amelanchier arborea, in flower, fruit, bark, and growth habit. The principal differences are the purplish to bronze color ofthe emerging leaves and the lack (almost) of hairs on the leaves and flower stalks. When the leaves mature to summer green, it is virtually impossible to distinguish this from the three previous serviceberries; for most purposes, they are interchangeable in the landscape.
