Amelanchier are best planted in a well-drained soil of clay, sand or loam within an acidic or neutral PH balance. Only a few of the species are lime tolerant, but most will cope with light shade and neutral soil if necessary. They are best positioned in full sun or part shade as this will bring out the best foliage colour and best flower performance. Amelanchier make fantastic hedging and screening.

If planting as part of a hedge, keep a distance or around 2m (6.5ft) between shrubs.
Prune during dormancy, which is usually between November and February. Take note that if you undertake winter pruning, it may be at the expense of the next flowering season. The benefit of winter pruning is the clear view of the branch structure where you can cut it back to an appropriate and pleasing shape.
It is possible to propagate Amelanchier by seed or semi-ripe cuttings.
