Interesting Notes about Serviceberry:

Serviceberry got its name because it grew primarily in the northeast where winters were harsh. When it was too cold to bury the deceased, the burials would have to wait until weather broke.  It was time to perform the burial services when the Serviceberry began to bloom.  Besides being able to withstand harsh winters it is also a highly ornamental tree for the landscape and is available as a multi-stem or single trunk.  They are a 4 season tree that begins in spring with beautiful flowers, followed by edible fruit, in the fall has colorful foliage and has great form in the winter.
