Description

When it comes to year-round beauty, it's hard to beat Amelanchier canadensis, and when it comes to Amelanchier, it's even harder to beat Spring Glory! It combines everything that's so beloved about this native tree: profuse spring bloom, sweet fruit, glorious fall color, and adds in a dwarf, compact habit that greatly expands the ways in which it can be used in the landscape or garden. Its short stature makes it perfectly suited for planting around utility lines and buildings.
