Snowflakes is a popular Amelanchier, named for its large single white flowers, which do indeed resemble flakes of snow on an early spring day.
The new leaves are initially copper-coloured, but turn green over the summer and then take on attractive autumn tints.
The small blue/black fruits are edible but best left to the birds - Snow Flakes is grown primarily for its ornamental features.
