Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance'™ ('Autumn Brilliance'™ Serviceberry)
Excellent trade name recognition because it is clearly a superior clone across a wide variety of Midwest and Eastern US climates. Grows to 20-25 ft. and develops reliable red-orange autumn color. The showy multi-colored fruits are relished by birds, and it never becomes obtrusive in the landscape.
Shiny dark green leaves and abundant, white, pleasantly fragrant flowers showcase this classy American native. Much hardier than C. retusus, it performs best in full sun and is remarkably versatile - from moist lowlands to dry hillsides. Among the finest of ALL landscape plants, not just natives.
Stunning autumn color. Its flaming fall foliage rivals that of Sugar Maple. Thrives in rocky, dry areas where other trees languish. Larger leaves than C. coggygria and much taller in stature at maturity.
