Tree of the Week – Amelanchier

/, News, Take Notice/Tree of the Week – Amelanchier

Snowy mespilus or June Berry (Amelanchier) Amelanchier lamarckii  tree is known for its stunning Spring blooms and lovely Autumn colour. These are small deciduous trees or shrubs with showy white flowers in early Spring, red to purple fruits and often good autumn colour.

A small tree of open habit, with bronze-tinged young leaves turning orange and red in autumn. White flowers appear in small clusters along a short stem as the leaves unfurl. The fruit is a red to dark purple-black berry, but is soon eaten by birds.

This stunning tree can grow up to 5m in height but it is usually pruned to shape at around 2.5-3.5m height. It grows naturally in a compact multi-stem habit.
