Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)
Manchurian Lilac

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. They are one of the most productive saskatoons. Their fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is most popular with u-pick operations for its taller tree-like shape and much larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards because it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Manchurian Lilac is a medium-sized shrub that features fragrant clusters of pale purple flowers in late spring.

Manchurian Lilac is less affected by disease than other lilacs and will create a beautiful border, hedge, or privacy screen. If you are looking for a lilac for your shelterbelt, consider Common Purple Lilac or Villosa Lilac first.
