Ballerina Snowy Mespilus Tree Amelanchier Grandiflora Ballerina
A lovely small spreading tree, the Ballerina Snowy Mespilus tree (Amelanchier x grandifolia 'Ballerina') forms a mass of delightful creamy-white flowers during spring. Small, edible, red fruit form and slowly become dark plum coloured as they ripen. This tree is best planted in a sunny position, where its leaves are bronze coloured and gradually change to dark green. Autumn sees this tree turning vibrant shades of oranges and reds. With a final height of only 5m (16ft 8in), this tree is ideal for a small intimate garden. Has the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 2.0m in a 7-12 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root or rootballed stock.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

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.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
Climate Change has increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust, frost damage etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season or less. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy and will bounce back.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy.
Mature Tree Warranty
Once a tree is over 3 years old, the failure rate is considerably less and our Tree Warranty does not cover it at 100%. Please check details.
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.
