There are a wide range of serviceberries that grow well in the Denver foothills, but one of our favorites is Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry (Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Autumn Brilliance’).
The brilliant fiery fall foliage is the highlight of this serviceberry, but it also boasts multi-seasonal interest.
In spring, it’s covered with loads of white flowers, edible dark red berries are produced in summer, and its smooth gray bark looks attractive in winter.
It’s a multi-stemmed tree that reaches 20-25 feet when mature and is also highly disease resistant.
Grow it in full sun and average to moist well-drained soil.
We recommend spring or early fall planting to get your new trees off to a great start. You can always call us for advice on where to plant your new tree(s) and don’t forget that we offer professional tree planting services if you don’t want to do it yourself!
