How to choose Amelanchier trees

Amelanchiers are primarily grown for their attractive spring blossom and the autumnal tints of their leaves. They are also known as Snowy Mespilus and Serviceberry, and the more fruitful forms are known as Juneberries or Saskatoons.

Most forms will produce blueberry-like fruits over the summer, although they are not related to blueberries. The species Amelanchier alnifolia has the best fruiting potential, these varieties are often sold as Saskatoons.

These bush-like trees are very cold-hardy. They will grow in most well-drained soils - but avoid clay or water-logged soils. They prefer neutral or slightly acidic conditions, but will tolerate slightly alkaline soils.

The flowers, which appear during May, are susceptible to frost damage, so avoid planting in areas prone to late frosts.
