Observation - Amelanchier - UK and Ireland. Description: More common than you would think, in municipal plantings along roadsides, in car parks etc. Foliage is often coppery in spring, and the flowers are pretty, starry white things. It's fairly undistinguished for the rest of the year, but lovely in spring.
