Amelanchier Lamarckii, also known as Snowy Mespilus and Juneberry, is a beautiful large deciduous shrub or small tree with a bushy spreading habit, native to balmy areas of the Northern Hemisphere. They are easy to grow in any reasonable soil, both in sun or in partial shade. The oval leaves are coppery-red in colour and silky when they emerge in spring, providing a gorgeous contrast to the masses of star shaped white flowers that bloom during March and April.
When the Amelanchier Lamarckii plants are in full flower, whether grown as a shrub, hedge or small tree, it is a beautiful spectacle – suitable for even the smallest of gardens. The edible fruits, tasting similar to a blueberry, are bright red in summer, turning purple-black in autumn and are very popular with birds. During the height of the season the foliage is mid green, before colouring to rich autumn hues of yellow, orange and red later in the year.
All of the Amelanchier hedging plants on this page are suitable for growing as trees, shrubs or for hedging. If you desire hedging then we recommend that you plant them 3-5 plants per metre, and ensure that hedges are trimmed after flowering.
