Deciduous. A versatile small sized tree with a softly arching, sometimes spreading habit. Amelanchier is valued for its subtle blossom in spring, its light dappled shade in summer, and its attractive autumn tints. Leaves emerge bronze, with the flowers, phasing to green in summer. Ideal as a specimen in a small garden, or planted in naturalistic drifts in a parkland setting. Hardy. 4-5m at 10 years. Tolerates a wide range of soil. A shallow rooting habit.
