Description

Amelanchier X Grandiflora 

The Autumn Brillance Serviceberry is a medium sized shrubby tree popular for its fall color and succulent summer berries (referred to as juneberries).  This tree grows to be about 15-20 feet tall at maturity and is typically used as a shrub border in yards or grown as a small tree.  In the spring, 5-petalled clusters of white flowers emerge which are followed by small green berries which gradually progress to red and then deep purple in the summer.  In the fall, the 5 inch long leave turn into a spectacular reddish-orange in the fall.

This Serviceberry can be grown alone as a shrub or pruned to be a multi stemmed or single stemmed small tree.  Many people in Colorado use this tree as a privacy screen as it has a wide spread and dense foliage.  This is a very hardy shrubby tree which grows best in full sun and is tolerant of a wide range of soils.  It has smooth light gray bark.

The juneberries which grow on this tree are commonly eaten raw or can be used in jams and pies.

Hardy to -40°F
Maximum Elevation: 8,500 ft.
