Saskatoon berry, or western serviceberry is a small tree commonly found throughout Canada's western provinces as well as the north-western United States. It grows to 8-10m or taller in good conditions and takes on the appearance of a multi-stemmed shrubby tree. The spring flowers are white and five-petaled, making it a nice ornamental tree. In the summer, the fruits are blue and purple berries that are edible raw, and often made into jams and pies.

Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours. Cold stratify for 90 days or sow outdoors in fall. Transfer into a sterile soil medium at room temperature for germination.

Packet contains at least 50 seeds.
