Amelanchier utahensis - Serviceberry - Rose Family (Roseaceae) - Summer - Colorado Shrub - Since Amelanchier utahensis grows in close proximity to Junipers (often called Cedars) it serves, unfortunately, as a host for the Apple-Cedar rust. After flowering season, Serviceberry leaves and berries commonly are orange-spotted with the Apple-Cedar rust, but when they are not, the fruit can be quite juicy and tasty.
