Amelanchier are small, deciduous trees or shrubs that originate from North America slowly funnelling their way through to Europe and Asia. These plants showcase impressive white flowers during the spring that are followed on with red and purple fruits during the summer. They have deciduous foliage which creates spectacular autumnal colour. Amelanchier make fantastic hedging and screening, separating boundaries and creating additional privacy in exposed gardens. You should expect to see your plants grow to an approximate height of 8m (26.5”) and a spread of 3m (10”).
Amelanchier are best planted in well-drained soil of clay, sand and loam within an acidic or neutral PH balance. Only a few of the species are lime-tolerant, yet most will cope with light shade and neutral soil if necessary. They are best positioned in a site that is exposed to full sun or part shade as this will bring out the finest foliage colour and best flower performance.
The best time to prune your Amelanchier is during dormancy, usually between November and February. However please 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.
