Brilliant Autumn Red in Tree or Shrub


The Autumn Brillance Serviceberry is a popular shrubby tree prized primarily for its fall color and succulent summer berries, referred to as juneberries.  It would look great as a shrub border in your yard or grown as a small tree.


The Autumn Brillance is a cultivar of the Apple Serviceberry. It’s a cross between the Downy and Allegheny.  It’s prized particularly for its obovate 5-inch long leaves that turn to a spectacular reddish-orange in the fall.


Before its' leaves begin to appear, its 5-petalled clusters of white flowers will stand in sharp contrast to the browns and greys of your transitioning landscape.


Soon you’ll see the flowers give way to small green berries that gradually progress to red and eventually into a deep purple in early summer. 


The Serviceberry is a shrubby tree that grows up to 15-25 feet with an equal spread.  It can be left alone to grow as a shrub or pruned to be a multi stemmed or single stemmed small tree.  It grows best in full sun and is tolerant of a wide range of soils


Serviceberries look like large, dark blueberries and taste similar, but with an almond-like accent.  They are commonly eaten raw or used in various jams and pies. Native Americans and early settlers enjoyed eating these berries and were thought by some to have medicinal properties.


The Serviceberry is certainly a hardy shrubby tree with a lot to offer.
