Downy serviceberry is a tall shrub, sometimes a small tree, found on dry locations in upland woods, open forests, and sometimes swamp edges. It is common in eastern North America west to the St. Croix River valley. Isolated populations are also found in northwestern Minnesota. Flowers appear from late April to late May when the leaves are just starting to unfold.
