Amelanchier x grandiflora 'Autumn Brilliance' is a hybrid serviceberry cultivar that grows as a large shrub or small tree, typically up to 15-20' tall. This serviceberry cultivar, also called autumn brilliance serviceberry or apple serviceberry, is easily grown in average, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade, and though it is tolerant of a somewhat wide range of soils, it prefers moist, well-drained loams.
Amelanchier x grandiflora is a natural hybrid cultivar of two native serviceberry species, Amelanchier laevis and A. arborea, which has resulted in larger, more profuse white flowers in the spring than either of the parent species, and therefore better fruit set during the summer months as well. The 'Autumn Brilliance' cultivar adds further seasonal interest with its striking fall foliage, in varying shades of orange and purple-tinted reds. Flowers, fruit, and leaves add ornamental, ecological, and edible interest through multiple seasons, as pollinators are attracted to flowers, birds and small mammals are attracted to edible fruit (which can also be used in pies and jams), and fall colors are sure to 'wow!'
