If you are not familiar with this genus, let me give you some details. There are about 25 species of Amelanchier worldwide along with many hybrids. The vast majority of species hail from North America (17 species). Apomixis and hybridization together contribute to taxonomic complexity inAmelanchier.

Hybridization combines genetically divergent genomes and spawns new forms that apomixis perpetuates. Apomixis is aposporous, facultative, and pseudogamous in the genus, and apomicts are generally polyploid, pollen fertile, and pollinated by generalists.
