Amelanchier Robin Hill is a small, shrubby, upright tree that is suitable for a small garden. It needs a moist, fertile soil and doesn't like chalk.Amelanchier Robin Hill trees can reach a height of about 9-10 metres. You may see this tree listed as Amelanchier x grandiflora Robin Hill or Amelanchier arborea Robin Hill. It was bred from Amelanchier arborea and Amelanchier laevis
A small, fairly upright and deciduous Juneberry tree, Robin Hill is a beautiful addition to your garden. It has pink buds and young flowers, which open in April when the leaves are barely breaking out of their buds, completely filling the tree with a cloud of flowers. The petals turn from pink to white as they mature. The young leaves are flushed with an earthy bronze tone that fades to a rich green by summer. In August, the flowers ripen into edible, raspberry red berries; Amelanchier is self fertile, so you only need one tree to get a crop. These are about a centimetre across and are very popular with birds, who will probably try to eat them all before you do. They taste a little like blueberries, are a good source of iron and can be dried; if you decide that they are too good for the birds, put a net up!
This tree has spreading, fibrous roots that are great for holding loose soil together. An ideal specimen tree for any sized garden, it is perfect for planting on a man made mound or bank. Robin Hill is also a top choice if you are looking for unusual fruit for your kitchen.
