Amelanchier canadensis is a large easily grown North American deciduous shrub preferring a moist root run.
The beauty is in the pure white petals, blemish free, these are of the purest white colour and sit well with the reddish brown shade of the emerging leaves. The foliage is covered in a fine coating of hair to prevent desiccation in the cold winds. These hairs are lost as the season progresses; the leaves later providing excellent autumn colour.
A multi stemmed shrub of vigour easily reaching three metres in height with a sprawling spread of four or more metres.
