Servicecherry - Apple, Autumn Brilliance®

Amelanchier x grandiflora, Autumn Brilliance® PP5717

Description

Apple Serviceberry is a small-sized native tree. Small white flowers emerge in spring from delicate pink buds. It attracts beneficial pollinators and produces a beautiful and valuable berry prized by many birds and other wildlife. Berries start red and turn a dark, robust purple. Bright green leaves transition to red foliage in autumn. Grows well in sun and part-shade, prefers average, moist soil, but tolerates a wide range of soil mixtures. With colored flower buds appearing early, and foliage turning red in autumn, Apple Serviceberry is a beautiful 3-season addition to the garden.
