This small tree is located in the Autumn Garden, where it displays its subtle blooms.
A deciduous tree with arching habit, Amelanchier lamarckii, will eventually reach 10m in height. It is a valuable tree for small spaces, having spring blossom held in racemes, which are set against bronze-flushed emerging foliage. In autumn it takes on russet colours. It also has the added bonus of edible black fruits, which can be used to make preserves. A member of the Rosaceae, its origin is unknown, though it is naturalised in Europe.
