Amelanchier Ballerina is an ornamental, spreading, deciduous shrub or small tree with vase-shaped crown. Its long-stemmed, glossy, oval, leaves are bronze in spring, dark green in summer, and red-purple in autumn. The autumn colour is very attractive. White and slightly blushed pink flowers grow in large, loose clusters. Small edible red to deep purple berries appear in July but are mostly eaten by birds. Amelanchier Ballerina is a resilient and tough tree. It can grow in full sun or partial shade. It likes moist lime-free soils, preferably clay or sandy, and will grow well in damp places. It is resistant to frost, can withstand wind, and tolerates partial paving and air pollution. This attractive ornamental plant is suitable for any garden. It looks great in small, patio, roof, or rock gardens. Good for growing in containers. Perfect for urban gardens and for planting in narrow streets.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
