AMELANCHIER canadensis – Shad Bush or NZ Whitebait Tree

Product Details

Shad Bush or NZ Whitebait Tree

Some trees give you a sign. The ‘Service Berry’ certainly does. When the white starry flowers arrive it usually coincides with the arrival of whitebait. The bronze tipped leaves of spring will give way to a fresh, almost mint green colour during the summer months as the flowers fade. Then when the Autumn show begins, you’ll welcome oranges and bright reds, even the odd intense crimson or purple, before the wonderful display moves to the ground below as the leaves fall. The Service Berry is tolerant of dry, exposed conditions and will grow to 4 x 3 metres.

Suitable for: Group and feature planting, smaller avenues.

Features: Tolerates dry exposed conditions, spring blossom and colourful autumn display.
