Amelanchier 'Autumn Brilliance'


Serviceberry can enhance any landscape with its delightful spring flush of white flowers.   It can be grown as a centerpiece of your landscape.  These trees are also well-adapted for planting under power lines due to their small size.  Their natural form is multi-stemmed but can be trained as a single trunk tree.  Trees perform best with plenty of open space for root expansion.   Do not restrict root zone or plant in poor, compacted soils.


Common Name: Serviceberry
Botanical Name: Amelanchier laevis, Amelanchier x grandiflora
Type: Deciduous Tree
Soil Preference: These plants tolerate some drought and some salt.  Will grow in dry soils but prefers well-drained, sandy or clay soils.   The pH preference is acidic to slightly alkaline.
Light Requirements: Full Sun, Partial Sun, Partial Shade
Attributes: Attracts birds & butterflies
Pests: Borer.  Leaf miner will mine leaves, particularly the lower half of the leaf.
Diseases: Fire Blight, Leaf Blight
Care: Pruning is usually not necessary.  Clear away all grass and plants from beneath the branches and mulch to the drip line to reduce competition with turf and weeds.  Train and prune the trunks and branches so they will not touch each other.  Flowers develop from buds formed the previous year so only prune after flowering.  Fertilize with Holly-tone or Plant-tone approximately April 1st, May 20th, July 4th, August 15th & October 30th.  Keep granular fertilizers off foliage and away from stems and trunks.  Use 1/2 the recommended rate of fertilizer for new plantings.
