      I don't know specifics about your environment . . . what I can tell

      you is that there are many species of juneberry and that one is

      probably native to an environment similar to yours. This website has

      maps of the juneberrie's native environment:

      http://plants. usda.gov/ java/profile? symbol=AMELA If you find a USDA

      hardiness zone map or a sunset zone map or such and compare weather to

      your environment then you should be able to find a specie that will

      fit yours. Some two year old juneberrie plants that I put in took 4-5

      years to get any real berries, like many fruit trees so don't give up.
