Amelanchier x grandifolia
A four season ornamental, the Serviceberry cultivars begin the growing season with a brief but showy display of pure white flowers in April. The summer foliage is attractive as well as the tasty fruit which appears in June. The fall color is a spectacular display of orange or red or a combination of the two and is effective for up to two weeks. The striated bark and branching structure lend winter interest. Mites can be a minor problem. Tolerates some shade. Early pruning to develop structure is beneficial both to the health and aesthetic beauty of the plant. Available in both clump and single-stem forms.
