*Heights are given as a very rough guideline and can have considerable variation based on species and supplier (each nursery experiences different growing conditions) It may even have been pruned before being sent out so we can only guarantee girth. Trees over 5.5m may include a delivery surcharge based on location and species.
Once a mature Amelanchier Lamarckii is over around 200cm/4 years old then girth is the best measure of value for money. For every girth measurement increment e.g. 6-8cm to 8-10cm (roughly 12-18months growth), the canopy will be wider, stronger, bushier and the root system larger as it has experienced 12-18 months growth. You can notice larger root systems with potted versions because the pot size increases with maturity. As a very general rule, each one cm girth measurement represents around 30cm growth but this doesn't apply to slow-growing trees.
Rootball means it will not come in a pot but will have the roots wrapped which you need to remove before planting and are available for delivery only between November and March. If listed in a pot, they are available to purchase and plant all year round.
Multistem means several stems starting very low to the ground. Comparing these with the same age Standard and Half Standard, these are typically shorter as growing several stems takes more effort than one stem.
Standard and Half Standard means lollipop shape. There is a more clear stem with a Standard.
Snowy Mespilus Tree or Juneberry Tree Amelanchier Lamarckii
This Snowy Mespilus Tree or Juneberry Tree (Amelanchier Lamarckii) produces a stunning display of small white flowers during spring which will provide a real focus of interest in the garden. Autumn produces a remarkable leaf display, consisting of a hue of oranges and reds. With a 10 year height of only 5m x 4m, we recommend Snowy Mespilus trees as being ideal for a small garden. It could go on to grow twice that but it depends on local conditions. If you have any doubts, the RHS gave it their Award Of Garden Merit so it must be good.
Planting lots of these trees with a spoon will help prevent global warming because the longer you are outside, the less time you are spending in the car or inside with the heating on.
The edible fruits will attract the local wildlife so be prepared for bird parties, squirrel raves and the odd hedgehog headbanging session.
Planting Snowy Mespilus Tree or Juneberry Tree Amelanchier Lamarckii
For best results set your expectations as low as possible. Failing that, plant in moist, well-drained and lime-free (chalk) soil that receives full sun although they will be fine in partial shade. These are listed as preferring acid soil so plant using ericaceous compost. Hardy down to minus 20 degrees centigrade. If it was any more frost resistant, you could take it into space.
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.
