    Amelanchier laevis 'Snowflakes'

    From £70.00

    Amelanchier laevis 'Snow Flakes', also known as Smooth Serviceberry Snowflakes, is a small, pretty tree popular for its large, white hanging flowers. Sprouting in April, these flowers are a lovely contrast to the red-bronze spring foliage. 'Snowflakes' is suited to clay, sandy and loam soil types and prefers a position in full sunshine or partial shade. In 10 years it will reach a height and spread of 4 x 3 metres.

     

    Amelanchier laevis 'Snow Flakes' makes the perfect feature tree, even in smaller gardens. Its dark fruits appear in summer and the narrow, oval foliage turns to mid-green, before turning a rich orange in the autumn. 

    Ideal for most soil conditions and strong in polluted areas, Amelanchier Snowflakes is perfect for urban gardens or harsher weathered areas. 

    Planting Advice

    Our single stem, pot grown Snowy Mespilus Snowflakes trees can be planted all year-round. To aid the trees growth more effectively, sprinkle root grow when planting. Here are some tips for planting your Amelanchier laevis tree:

    1. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide 
    2. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost
    3. Place the roots of the tree into the hole, fill it with your soil mix and firm around gently (avoid banking the collar of the tree)

    Aftercare Advice

    Once your tree is planted, keep the area free of weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons.

    • If planting in spring or summer, water well for the first few months and increase watering if there are periods of hot or dry weather.
    • If planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little.  

    If your area is prone to rabbits, use a rabbit guard.

    Pruning Advice

    Minimal pruning is required for Amelanchier Snowflakes. 

    • Remove crossing, diseased or untidy branches
    • Remove any growth that is older than 4 years to encourage fresh flower growth

    Prune after the flowering season.

    Whilst Amelanchier Snowflake trees can't handle hard pruning, it will mean less flowering in the following spring.
