All plants are sold in at least 9cm pots, NOT tiny plug plants!

Amelanchier Canadensis (Canadian Serviceberry)


Plant Information

Aspect: Full Sun
Aspect: Light/Partial Shade
Soil Type: Most Types
Colour: White

A good choice for a small plot, this handsome tree is compact in size and works hard for its place in the garden by putting on shows of blossom, fruit and autumn leaf colour.

Usually grown as a multi-stemmed specimen, it enjoys a sunny or partially shaded spot in moist soil.

White star shaped blooms decorate the branches in March and April and are followed later in the season by purple/black edible sweet fruits.

In early autumn, the dark green leaves turn vivid shades of red and gold before falling.

Due to its relatively small size it is an ideal tree for smaller garden; this low-maintainance tree can also be used for screening.

For best flower and leaf colour, plant in Full Sun.

Height and spread: 4m x 3m

Common name(s): Canadian Serviceberry; Grape Pear; Juneberry; Shadblow; Shadbush.

  • All our plants are hardy and perennial (come back year after year) unless otherwise specified in the description.
  • Every plant we sell is sold established in at least a 9cm pot, although many are in bigger pots. Unlike some nurseries, we do not sell plug plants because these require ongoing care when you receive them. Our plants can be planted in your garden as soon as you receive them, or they can be left in their pots for several weeks until you are ready to plant them.
  • As we grow everything ourselves and cannot just buy more stock when levels are low, there will be times when certain varieties are unavailable until the next batch has grown on.
  • We are not technically 'organic' but, as far as possible, we limit the use of pesticides and chemicals. We are fortunate enough to be situated in the countryside and we enjoy the environment and natural world that surrounds us, so we do what we reasonably can to protect it.
  • For a limited time we are offering free delivery for orders over £50.
If you have any questions about our plants, please feel free to contact us and we'll be happy to help.
