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.
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 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.
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.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
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.
