Altezza della pianta: 20-60cm cm
Amelanchier canadensis, native to Canada and North America, is a highly branched deciduous shrub or small tree, up to 4-6 m tall. The leaves are ovate to elliptical, dark green, with serrated margins. In autumn, before fall, the leaves take on a beautiful red-orange colour, very decorative. At the beginning of spring, before the leaves appear, numerous very fragrant white flowers bloom, followed by small edible fruits with a color ranging from purple to purple depending on the degree of ripeness.

Pedoclimatic needs

Cultivate in any fertile, well-drained soil, preferring medium-textured, sub-acid soil with good organic substance content. It loves exposure in full sun or partial shade and resists cold and even intense and prolonged frosts well (up to -20°/-22°C). It cannot tolerate drought and must be watered regularly during the dry season.

Sowing

From autumn to early spring. After aestivation (the seeds first need a hot period and then a cold one to germinate)
