Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry
Autumn brilliance serviceberry (Amelanchier × grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance')
This upright shrub or small tree has spreading branches and can reach a mature height of 15 to 25 feet. White, five-petaled flowers enshroud the plant in late April or early May. They are quickly followed by edible berries that the birds adore. A popular early spring-flowering small tree, this is truly a plant for all seasons: it has beautiful spring flowers, handsome green leaves, striking orange to red fall color and silver bark. The apple serviceberry ushers in spring with pink flower buds that open to reveal white flowers. This serviceberry tolerates partial shade and is disease-resistant.
