Amelanchier Autumn Brilliance, Apple Serviceberry
A beautiful multi-seasonal small tree, Autumn Brilliance Apple Serviceberry, Amelanchier, is rightly designated as a Plant of Merit by the Missouri Botanical Garden. Spring brings showy snow white flowers. Summer is followed by red berries that look like tiny apples. The berries are edible and taste like blueberries, they can be used in jam and pies, but may also be left for the birds. In fall glossy leaves turn blazing orange-red.
Plant Serviceberry in full sun to part shade locations. Found naturally on woodland edges.
