Origin: Canada. Amelanchier canadensis is a beautiful shrub which will grow in sun or part shade, growing to 200-250cm it has pretty star-shaped white flowers in the spring, which are followed by juicy anthocyanin rich fruits ready for picking from early July, and the added bonus of glorious autumn foliage.

The reddish-purple berries are packed with vitamins and antioxidants, perfect to eat fresh from the bush like blueberries, or ideal to bake and preserve. Supplied in a 4 litre pot.
