Serviceberry

Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance'

Green branches and red fruit of the Serviceberry tree

A four-season ornamental, Serviceberry or Amelanchier x grandiflora, kicks off the growing season with a brief but showy display of pure white flowers in April. The attractive summer foliage, along with the tasty fruit, appears in June.(The sometimes common name of Juneberry for this plant refers to this fact.) The taste of the berries resembles blueberries, and they may be used in jams, jellies and pies.
The fall color is a spectacular display of orange, red, or a combination of the two and is effective for up to two weeks. The striated bark and branching structure lend winter interest. Serviceberry thrives in partial shade, growing 15'-25' tall with an equal spread. Early pruning to develop structure is beneficial for both the health and aesthetic beauty of the plant. Available in both clump and single-stem forms.

The ornamental attributes are most effective when combined with other plants/backgrounds such as the following:
1. An evergreen background to accent spring flowers and autumn color, with White Pines being an excellent choice.
2. Broadleaf evergreens such as Moonglow Magnolia.
3. Rugged-structured trees such as Burr Oak.
4. Light-colored masonry background to accent the structure.
