Amelanchier Robin Hill Trees

Amelanchier Robin Hill is small, fairly upright and deciduous. It is a beautiful addition to any garden. It has pink buds and young flowers, which open in April when the leaves are barely breaking, 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 a bronze tone that fades to a rich green by summer. By August, the flowers have ripened into edible, raspberry red berries. All Amelanchiers are 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 unless you use nets. They taste a little like blueberries, are a good source of iron and can be dried.

This tree has spreading, fibrous roots that are great for holding loose soil together and which make it perfect for planting on a mound or bank. Robin Hill is also a top choice if you are looking for unusual fruit for your kitchen. Fully grown it 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

How Standard Trees are Measured

All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height. Standard trees are generally 2.5 - 4 metres tall (on average) when they arrive.
