I like the Serviceberry bush. And viburnum carlisae.

Serviceberry (Amelanchier) tree & bush are wonderful plants. Great berries for feeding returning birds in spring. Beautiful spring flowers, summer-fall fruit, amazing fall colors.

The original (TRUE, OLD TIME, MOST FRAGRANT) Viburnum carlesii (true Koreanspice viburnum) isn’t grown anymore because of a fungus; it’s been replaced by another duplicate cultivar which is immune to that fungus. The growers didn’t change the name, due to the demand for the shrub.
