Plant of the moment No.21: Amelanchier lamarckii

A large shrub or small tree native to North America, Amelanchier lamarckii comes into its own in April, when the copper-tinged young foliage begins to emerge, quickly followed by hundreds of small, starry white flowers that create a stunning effect. Maintenance couldn't be easier; some basic winter pruning to maintain a good, open shape and to remove any weak or crossing branches and that's it – job done.
