Juneberry (Amelanchier)

Ornamental tree native to the temperate regions of Northern Hemisphere.
Great diversity through out North America with at least one species native to each state of US except Hawaii and the Canadian provinces. Two species are known in Asia, one in Europe.

My dear friend Yao Tseng Chen found an interesting explanation why one common name is Serviceberry: In former times Juneberry was the first native tree in North America to blossom in spring at the time when the earth was than and the service on the graveyards could start again burying the death of the winter.
