Autumn Brilliance® Serviceberry is a spritely tree that brings a feeling of lightness and playfulness to your landscape.  In early spring, this small ornamental tree becomes a cloud of bright white blossoms.  In summer, the delicate leaves flutter when breezes blow or when songbirds swoop in to nab the ripe berries.  (The fruit tastes like blueberries, and you’ll want to have some, too.)  In fall, the foliage sparkles with hues of orange and russet red.  A moderately fast-growing tree, Autumn Brilliance® Serviceberry reaches its mature height of 25 feet in only 10 years or so.  Plant it singly or in groves with a background of evergreen trees, like Norway Spruce or Hemlock, to make the flowers really pop.

The Story

Autumn Brilliance Serviceberry was selected as a standout seedling by the late Willet “Bill” Wandell at his Illinois nursery in 1986.  Bill was ahead of his time.  Although native to every state in the Union except Hawaii, Serviceberries never enjoyed much popularity here until the 1990s.  The name Serviceberry stems from the tree’s gloomy association in days past with funeral services, as their blooms coincided with the ground having thawed enough for burials to resume.  Its other common names, “Shadbush” (blooming when the shadfish spawn) and “Juneberry” (when the delicious fruits ripen) are considerably more upbeat.

The Details

Can you take a guess why they call it Autumn Brilliance? Besides having brilliant red fall color and edible purple-black berries, this fast growing tree also produces white flower clusters in spring. The foliage is even resistant to leaf spot. This tree is quite the multi-tasker if you ask me!

How to Grow

Wild Serviceberries are often found at the forest’s edge, so it comes as no surprise that Autumn Brilliance also appreciates a site that receives dappled shade, or at least some protection from the mid-day sun.  News of ripe Serviceberries spreads like wildfire among our feathered friends, so to salvage any for yourself you’ll have to net the plant before they ripen.  Also, the beech-like gray bark is handsome, but thin, so keep string trimmers well away from the trunk.  Otherwise, Autumn Brilliance is carefree!
