AMELANCHIER LAMARKII, SNOWY MESPILUS-JUNE BERRY
Amelanchier Lamarkii (Snowy Mespilus, June Berry) is a beautiful large deciduous shrub or small tree with a bushy spreading habit. They are easy to grow in any reasonable soil in sun or partial shade. The oval leaves are coppery-red and silky when they emerge in spring and contrast effectively with the masses of star shaped white flowers in March and April.
Amelanchier Lamarkii in full flower grown as a shrub, hedge or small tree is a beautiful spectacle, suitable for even the smallest of gardens. The edible fruits are bright red in summer turning purple-black in autumn and are very popular with birds. In summer the foliage is mid green before colouring to rich autumn hues of yellow, orange and red.
The Amelanchier plants on this page are suitable for growing as trees, shrubs or for hedging where we recommend planting 45cm (18ins) apart. Snowy Mespilus hedges should be trimmed after flowering.
