Robin Hill is unusual amongst Amelanchiers for its pink flower buds, which gradually turn snow white as they open.
It is also one of the earliest Amelanchiers to come into flower, usually in late March or early April.
The pale copper leaves emerge slightly later, turning green over the summer and then taking on orange and red hues in the autumn.
Tiny fruits are sometimes borne over the summer, but this is not a particularly fruitful variety.

Amelanchiers belong to the same family as apple trees, and are susceptible to some of the same diseases, including mildew - but Robin Hill is one of the more resistant varieties.
