Amelanchier stolonifera / Running Serviceberry
This rare species is a short-statured Juneberry native to sunny edges and glades on thin soil, in bedrock cracks in ridgelines, and other fairly non-competitive environments. It tends to run laterally on short stolons, becoming a multi-stemmed shrub over time. It will need protection from deer, and also relief from tall competitive and weedy plants.
Flowers are a bit smaller than the common Juneberry species, but the fruit is still tasty.
Also known as Amelanchier spicata.
