Notes:

My husband and I planted a serviceberry in our yard as part of our wedding ceremony. It’s been fine for 2.5 yrs, but this year the fruit is malformed and some have tell-tale rust horns. I found material online about these cedar rusts on plants like apples, and while these mention serviceberry/saskatoon/shadbush as a host, I’ve seen no specific treatment advice for this plant. The general recommendations seem to vary widely. I’m hoping someone with more knowledge on this can help us. Thanks!
