Autumn Brilliance Shadblow Serviceberry, or Juneberry, is a deciduous small tree with many attractive attributes lasting all season long. In the early parts of spring, these tall plants bloom with drooping clusters of brilliant white, starry flowers. The sweet, purple Juneberries that follow are similar to blueberries, but have a mustier, apple flavor. They are great in pies and preserves. Berries are followed by bright red and orange fall foliage, then beautiful winter bark. These gorgeous trees grow from 12 to 25 tall and are truly a tree with four season appeal.
Native to North America, Autumn Brilliance Shadblow Serviceberry is great for any type of landscape. It is a heavily branched tree with a rounded peak and moderate growth rate. The early spring flowers attract pollinators of all kinds, and birds adore the summer fruit, so choose a site with lots of clearance where litter won’t be a problem. This particular species of serviceberry is faster growing than other varieties, and more resistant to both leaf spot and fire blight.
Autumn Brilliance Shadblow Serviceberry Care
Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry should be planted in full to partial sun. It is fairly drought tolerant once it’s been established, and does well in a variety of different soils, so long as they have good-drainage. Keep the root ball of the plant sufficiently moist until the plant is well established. To produce the maximum amount of berries, fertilize your serviceberry shrubs with liquid fertilizer in six-week intervals between early April to the end of October.
Prune your Shadblow Serviceberry after it has finished blooming in the late fall or early spring by removing crossing, crowded, or diseased branches. You should prune your serviceberries annually, but be sure to leave some old growth, as flowers form on old wood. If you want your serviceberries to have a single trunk, instead of the traditional multi-stems, start when the tree is young by pruning the root suckers as they appear, following flowering.
Autumn Brilliance Shadblow Serviceberry Spacing
Your Autumn Brilliance will look spectacular when planted against a dark background like an evergreen hedge or woodland, to show off their white petals and fall colors. Serviceberries make excellent under-plants, and excel alongside perennials and ground cover of all kinds. They can be planted en masse as borders and hedges, or as privacy screens or windbreaks. When planting, space your Autumn Brilliance Shadblow Serviceberries 12 to 15 feet apart.
