Amelanchier laevis 'R J Hilton'

Snowy Mespilus

Description: Amelanchier laevis 'R J Hilton' is a free-flowering cultivar with similar foliage to 'La Paloma'. Distinctively pink when in bud opening to large, white flowers, having a stunning contrast to the deep copper-coloured emerging leaves. Excellent tints of red and yellow autumn leaf colours are followed by blue-black berries. A stunning addition to any garden!

History: Discovered in the wild in Canada.

Amelanchier Growing Tips: They will thrive in moist, well-drained, lime-free soil. The best autumn colour is achieved when they're planted in a full sun position but they do tolerate partial shade.
