Amelanchier Lamarckii x 5 June Berry 60-80 cm tall
Attractive small tree for all sizes of gardens. Can be grown as a standard tree to make a featured specimen for small, medium or large gardens. Whiter racemes produced late spring with large ovate long light green leaves with slight orange veining.
Also ideal as a hedging plant either as the one species or in a mixed hedge.
Brilliant orange-red autumn colours. Any soil type.
No pruning required but any lower shoots or branches may be removed to encourage new flowers.
The planting season is between November and late March while the plant is in dormant growth. Dig a reasonable hole and plant with either some rose, tree and shrub compost or any organic matter (but not fresh manure, well rotted is fine) and plant with some bone meal or fish, blood and bone as this will encourage quick root growth. Plant 4 per metre in a staggered row (in a double row 50cm apart and the rows 30cm apart) clipping the top leader on planting to encourage bushy growth.
Do not water once planted (unless the ground is very dry), so the plant will find it's own water (make it work for it's water, creating strong root growth)
Once established will grow anything between 20cm-45cm per year.
These plants are supplied bundles of 5 and are 60-80cm tall and bareroot.
