Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Ballerina' Tree

Juneberry Tree

from From £49.99 (ex. VAT)
( £59.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Ballerina' is a wonderful small tree with a broad crown worthy of a place in any size of garden. Clusters of star shaped, white flowers sometimes blushed pink, blanket the tree in April.

Foliage unfurls a highly attractive bronze colour in spring, before turning dark-green and oval in summer with fine a serration at the edges. In autumn the leaves turn striking reddish-purple offering an astounding autumn display. Small red berries are produced which can be eaten and are very popular with birds.

A tough ornamental tree, this Amelanchier tree will grow well in damp sites, is tolerant of pollution and will do well in most soils but prefers clay or sandy soil types. For the best autumn foliage colour, acidic soils are ideal. Expect a height and spread of 4 x 4 metres in 20 years. This variety of Juneberry has received the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Delivery Timescales

Most deliveries are made within a week of placing the order. Many are despatched within 24 hours of receiving the order, but please allow up to 10 working days to be on the safe side. There is a slightly longer timescale on pleached trees or trees over 2.5m in height (all trees called Standard, Premium Standard, Heavy Standard, Extra Heavy Standard, Mature Trees or Pleached) because we have to group orders together into geographic areas for a specialist haulage contractor to deliver. All trees are packed very carefully by our experienced team and delivered using couriers who've been tried and tested over many years.

Gift trees and other trees required for arrival on a specific date can be accommodated with pleasure at no extra charge. Although it is rarely a problem, we do have to say that we accept no legal responsibility for late deliveries.

The vast majority of trees are sent on a 'no signature required' basis, so there's no need to be in to receive your order. You can give us instructions on where to leave your delivery either via the checkout or send us a separate email. For some mature or pleached trees we may contact you in advance if the delivery driver needs help getting the tree/trees off the vehicle.

Our nursery is a busy despatch centre and therefore customers need to make an appointment to collect or view trees.  For collections, despatch charges will be refunded.

Planting Advice for Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Ballerina' Trees

When planting Juneberry trees, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown Juneberry trees can be planted at any time of the year. You will need to carry out the following to prepare your planting site.

Firstly, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole then dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil.

If you have poor soil mix 50% of your original soil with 50% high quality compost. Fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

Aftercare Advice for Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Ballerina' Trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little. We also stock a range of irrigation kits, suitable for a variety of planting schemes.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds for the first couple of growing seasons. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass surrounding your tree as this will only encourage growth.
If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Ballerina' Trees

Juneberry trees should be pruned in winter to late spring. The only pruning they really require is to remove any crossing, diseased or untidy looking branches. June berry trees can handle hard pruning but it will mean less flowering in the following spring so we recommend leaving this type of pruning until after they have flowers.

A good tip when pruning Juneberry trees is to remove any growth that is older than four years as this will improve the shape of your tree and encourage fresh bud and flower growth.
