Amelanchier La Paloma
La Paloma (Amelanchier 'La Paloma') which was previously distributed as A. laevis is a truly wonderful snowy mespilus tree and deserves to be more widely planted. The pure white, pendulous flower clusters look sensational against the almost luminous coppery-red young leaves in April. Forms a round-headed small tree. Excellent leaf colour is superb during autumn.
A small height tree, so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 1.8m in a 12 litre container for year round planting and has a higher successful transplant rate compared to bare-root or rootballed stock.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Alan, The trees (La Paloma) arrived, beautifully packed, without any damage, and were even better specimens than I had expected – thank you! Kate 0913
Accidentally met courier on his arrival. All well, but he claimed to have no knowledge of the instructions I sent, as requested, on where he might leave it had we not been in. Thanks for asking, and we would use you again. Philip Carlisle 0913
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.
