Special Plant Features & Tips
  • The Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry is an excellent shrub with multi-season interest.
  • It has very showy white flowers that precede to a purplish edible fruit in June.
  • The excellent glossy blue-green leaves turn brilliant red-orange in fall, complimented by nice and smooth gray-colored stems.
  • Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerant of a somewhat wide range of soils but prefers moist, well-drained loams.
  • Root suckers are common, and if not removed, will result in a shrubby growth habit for the plant.
  • Berries resemble blueberries in taste and may be used in jams, jellies, and pies.
  • Great plant for bird gardens (birds love the berries)!
  • Prune your serviceberries once a year in late winter or early spring before new leaves emerge. Remove dead, diseased or crossing branches. Leave plenty of the previous year’s growth (the plants flower on this wood).
