Description

Planted for both as an ornamental and for its edible fruit, the Autumn Brilliance® Serviceberry is a treasured tree for all seasons. Named for its notable fall color, Autumn Brilliance® is just as spectacular in the spring, with its abundance of showy, white flowers.

The flowers give way to small green berries that gradually deepen into red. They finally mature a deep, rich purple in early summer. Sometimes referred as Juneberry, named for the annual summer time frame of the ripe berries. Other common names for plants in the genus Amelanchier include saskatoon, shadbush, sarvisberry, and sugar plum.

Serviceberries look like large, dark blueberries. You can eat serviceberries raw, bake them in pies or cook them into delicious jams.

The Autumn Brilliance® Serviceberry can be pruned as a single stem tree or a multiple stemmed large shrub which is suitable for accent planting or privacy screening. A great choice for a landscape centerpiece, the Autumn Brillance has oval shaped, coppery-red, becoming rich green throughout the growing season, and then red again for a fiery fall display. Plant serviceberry trees in full sun for maximum fruit production.
