This tree is a treasure through the seasons. It'll make your heart swell in spring with its romantic fragrant, white flowers. They're followed by red-purple berries that have a sweet flavor reminiscent of blueberries. These go great in jams and pies… or let neighborhood birds enjoy them. In fall, the leaves turn orange and red, providing the brilliance its name promises. Even in winter, the silvery, smooth bark is beautiful. This serviceberry grows to a size somewhere around a large shrub or smaller tree. It's a great accent for a border or the front yard. Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance'
