The native Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry (Amelanchier grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance') is a versatile and popular shrubby tree. It goes by Shadbush, Juneberry, Sugarplum and Wild-Plum. George Washington planted this species at his estate, Mount Vernon.

You can grow it as either a multi-stemmed privacy shrub, or prune it into a single trunked ornamental tree.

The long leaves are prized for gorgeous fall color, but people also love the the succulent summer berries, which are commonly referred to as "Juneberries".

In spring, you'll appreciate the beautiful, puffy clusters of white flowers, which simply cover this tree. It's a wonderful harbinger of the growing season! It's no wonder that butterflies love this tree.

Soon you'll see the flowers give way to small green berries that gradually deepen into red, and finally turn a deep, rich purple in early summer.

Serviceberries look like large, dark blueberries and they taste like almonds and blueberries got married in your mouth. Yum!

You can eat these berries raw, or bake them in pies or cook them into delicious jams. Native Americans and early settlers enjoyed eating these berries and were thought by some to have medicinal properties.

This is a great small tree with a lot of history, and a ton of beautiful features. Order yours today!
