The June Berry tree or Amelanchier to use it Latin name is a genus of approximately 20 species of deciduous trees and shrubs. Ornamental Tree Nurseries have a wonderful range of the most popular varieties of Juneberry tree, ideal for planting in gardens or for using in landscape projects.
Amelanchier has many common names, you may also see it referred to as: shadbush, shadwood, shadblow or service berry to name a few! Amelanchier is derived from the old name for Amelanchier Ovallis. The name 'shad' originates from the flowers which supposedly flower 'when the shads run'. Shads are river herrings in New England streams. The name Serviceberry is derived from its similarity with the European Sorbus.
The flowers of Amelanchier trees range from whites to pinks and have a wonderful star shaped form. The foliage bursts into life with a warm, bronzed colour, maturing into a mid-green then turning reddy purple or reddy orange in autumn, depending on variety. The bronzed foliage contrasts wonderfully with the white or pink flowers.
Juneberry trees are very hardy and grow in most positions. Our range of Amelanchier trees include two varieties that have been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
