Like the other varieties of Amelanchier we offer, Snowflakes (Amelanchier laevis 'Snowflakes') will make an excellent choice of tree for the small garden. This tree has an ascending form and has the most amazing show of extra large single white flowers, hence its name. This contrasts well with its beautiful copper foliage. As a result, this tree will form a real item of interest in any garden. Expect this tree to reach a final height of around 5m. If you would a much taller version of Amelanchier Snowflakes then we suggest planting at the top of a hill or purchasing a large plant pot and learn how to put up scaffolding.
Our Amelanchier Snowflakes is supplied at a height of between 150 and 200cm in a 5-12 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.
See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Amelanchier Snowflakes
Hi Alan, I am writing to let you know that the Amelanchier Snowflakes tree was delivered safe and sound on Wednesday - of course we weren't in at the time but never mind. I managed to fight with the cardboard box and release it from captivity. You could hear its sigh of relief. After much hummimg and hahhing about which is its best side, it is now planted and I am giving it verbal encouragement on a daily basis along with plenty of water of course. It looks good. This tree has a sentimental meaning for me so I am looking forward to it flourishing and flowering. If for some reason unbeknown to ourselves, this does not happen then I will be in touch. But I am sure all will be well. Many thanks for your reliability and keeping me informed by your very amusing emails. They make me giggle. Kind regards Julia 0816
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.
