Amelanchier Canadensis (Serviceberry Tree)

The Amelanchier Canadensis or Serviceberry tree is a resilient tree/shrub and is considered very attractive. This maybe an opinion formed by the Amelanchier Canadensis Appreciation Society in which case could be considered biased. To the average Joe on the street, it might just be a tree with white flowers.

Thrives well in boggy conditions, the implication being that it prefers water and quite a bit of it although you can plant it in other environments such as woods, hedgerows etc. Plant if full sun for best colours. 

The rounded dark green oval leaves turn a lovely shade of orange (or gold depending on how much of the poet there is in you!)    

Showy star shaped white flowers appear March to April time which turn to dark edible fruits in Summer. They do this without the need of another Amelanchier nearby and so are considered self-fertile.  

The fruits have a few small seeds at the centre and taste a little like apple although impart an almond life flavour when cooked and are high in iron and copper. You will be competing with the birds for the fruits so either set the alarm early and go to bed with your running shoes on or net the tree.

Planting Amelanchier Canadensis 
Plant in fertile, moist but well-drained neutral to acid soil, clay, loam or chalk, in full to partial shade and expect a final height of around 6m and a spread of 3m although you can prune to less (never seen pruned more!) Best results have been achieved by planting in acidic and damp conditions but not waterlogged. 

You can mix in ericaceous compost to the excavated dirt for absolutely best results as this is on the acidic side. Mulching with pine needles and/or saw dust is another method of acidifying the soil. 

Mostly grown as a multi stem shrub and considered to be UK fully hardy which means will stick its twigs up to minus 15 degrees centigrade.

Will tolerate strong winds but not coastal environments. As it tolerates high winds, the Serviceberry tree can be planted as an informal hedge and used as a windbreak. 

Other Amelanchier Canadensis information (Just in case you have time to kill)
Native to North America and Canada and usually found growing from sea level up to around 200m. Used in Bonsai with some medicinal uses.

The wood of the Serviceberry Tree is close grained and useful for tool handles or other application requiring strong wood.

Some ornamental gardens under plant the Amelanchier Canadensis with perennial plants and are favoured by many local authorities because of its low maintenance, hardiness, tolerance to pollution and aesthetic qualities.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.

Mildew Issues
Mildew with young Amelanchier trees is a common problem. This does not affect the health of the tree, just the leaves and is a cosmetic problem.
