In Luxembourg, juneberry is commonly planted as an ornamental tree. Until now, there has been no documented occurrence outside of urban areas in Luxembourg.

In its introduced range, the juneberry shrub thrives on sandy acidic soils, especially in heathlands, in open woodlands, along forest edges and in urban areas. The plant’s fruits can be dispersed over long distances by birds. Juneberry populations are slowly expanding in Western European countries and are reported to be locally invasive (Source:
