Re: Serviceberry blight?
Gardenwitch- the thing to do would be to try planting a rust resistant variety. However, when I tried finding Amelanchier cultivars listed as rust resistant, I didn’t have much luck. Rainbow Pillar was listed by some merchants online as rust resistant, but in Dirr’s Manual of Woody Plants it is only listed as mildew resistant, so I am doubtful. Do you know what cultivar you have?
Does anyone have experience with a cultivar that seems to be rust resistant? I would love to plant this in my yard too, but I am surrounded by Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) here and see plenty of rust both on the cedars and crabapples on my block.
