Amelanchier Laevis Snowflakes is a beautiful, upright deciduous tree of the Amelanchier family prized for its large white spring flowers. It originates from North America and is also known as the Juneberry Tree or Snowy Mespilus Tree. The terms snowflakes and snowy refer to the large star-shaped flowers that cover its branches in April and attract early pollinators. This pearly spring display is the main reason gardeners choose a Snowy Mespilus Tree over others.
Alongside those striking blooms Amelanchier Laevis Snowflakes produces fresh copper-coloured foliage that stands out against the white flowers. Its bushy foliage gradually turns green in the summer when its edible purple-red berries ripen. Birds will quickly eat the Juneberry Tree’s fruit. In autumn the Snowy Mespilus Tree produces dramatic orange-red foliage. It is a beautiful and practical choice for a small, wildlife-friendly garden.
Juneberry Tree Hardiness Levels
The Juneberry Tree is hardy in all UK climates and requires no specific care. Although it prefers acid or neutral ground it will grow in the majority soils and can withstand extreme cold if not waterlogged around the roots. Winds will not harm the tree but will shake the flowers loose more rapidly.
How To Use Amelanchier Laevis Snowflakes
If you have a small garden the Snowy Mespilus Tree is a practical addition because it can be grown as a large ornamental shrub or as a compact, shallow-rooted specimen tree reaching an approximate height of four metres within twenty years.
A Snowy Mespilus Tree can be grown in the ground or in a large container which will limit its size. If you choose to grow one in a pot ensure you provide plenty of water in the hot summer months to ensure the best autumnal foliage display.
How To Care For Your Amelanchier Laevis Snowflakes
Very little pruning is required, in fact an Amelanchier Laevis Snowflakes is self-sufficient, but it’s worth cutting out any crossed stems or dead wood in winter or late spring to hold the shape.
Amelanchier Laevis Snowflakes will grow best in moist free-draining soil with a yearly layer of thick organic mulch which will improve the flower display in spring. All Amelanchier appreciate sun on their foliage canopy. If you can plant yours in sunlight it will boost the rich orange autumnal colours.
The tough yet beautiful Amelanchier Laevis Snowflakes is a valuable source of colour throughout the year with frothy white flowers in spring, fresh green summer foliage with purple-red berries and a stunning orange autumnal display. These attributes make it an ideal feature tree for small to mid-sized gardens.
