AMELANCHIER LEMARKII 10 Litre Pot (Collection Only)
When Gardeners ask me to suggest a small tree for their garden I always know exactly what to say – Amelanchier lamarckii or snowy mespilus is the most beautiful small tree that offers everything you could ever want, with year-round interest. Amelachier is not a very quick to grow tree and even when mature wont overshadow a garden or become out of hand, needing costly maintenance. It generally has a lovely dense, shrubby shape. In March the branches erupt with a froth of star-shaped flowers, which all pollinators love! just as the coppery pink young leaves unfold; during the hot summer this little treasure of a tree produces its fruit which are wonderful for the birds starting off red turning purple as they ripen, the leaves become yellow-green, but then at the end of the season is a finale of fiery scarlet and crimson autumn colour before finally falling.
