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.

Because I raise honeybees and the flowers will give them pollen and nectar.
Jackie on Feb 20, 2021
I wanted to try them. I look for trees/shrubs that help pollinators.

It says to plant different varieties for cross-pollination. So, would buying 4 of these trees not cross-pollinate them because they are the same variety? I'm fairly new to planting/gardening. Thanks in advance!
Julianna on Jan 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. The Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry needs two of the same for proper pollination.

Does this come as a multi trunk bare root? Or, as a single trunk?
Kristin L on Feb 20, 2021

Beautiful tree, native to Midwest
I planted this tree in early spring 2020 and had berries that summer. It's a beautiful tree, native to the Midwest, with delicious berries. Just make sure you get them before the birds do!
