The article offers information on the plant shadbush in New York. For many anglers, the tiny white flowers are a much anticipated welcome sight--a signal that it is once again time for the annual spawning runs of shad on the Hudson and Delaware rivers. In fact, the name shadbush comes from the fact that this plant's flowers appear at the same time the fish return. Also called juneberry, serviceberry and shadblow, the shadbush is a member of the rose family.
