Description

Amelanchier Ballerina, Standard Size Trees

Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Ballerina’ is a neat little tree that’s just right for small gardens. Its succession of spring flowers, colourful foliage and autumn berries provide interest over three seasons.

A good choice for urban gardens as it’s tolerant of pollution and some shade. Its flowers and berries are a fantastic source of food for pollinating insects and birds. An attractive, low maintenance addition to any garden.

Star-shaped white flowers are produced in profusion in April, and are followed by small red berries in the autumn. These are a great favourite with birds. In spring the young, finely serrated, oval leaves are tinged with bronze, before turning green in summer and then taking on rich reddish purple tones in autumn. Plant in full sun to ensure the best display of colour.

Delivered bareroot, between November and March.

Growing Amelanchier Ballerina

Prefers a sunny site with moist, well-drained soil with a neutral to acidic soil pH. It will tolerate some shade and is hardy throughout the UK. 

Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Ballerina’ looks lovely as the centrepiece of a lawn but also works well in a border. Underplant with spring bulbs, grasses and herbaceous perennials for a long lasting planting scheme. Add bold foliage plants such as bronze fennel and Carex ‘Prairie Fire’ that will pick up on ‘Ballerina’s’ colouring.

Did You Know?

Bred in Holland. 

Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Ballerina’ belongs to the Rosaceae family. Amelanchier are small deciduous shrubs or trees with pretty white flowers in early spring, purple-red berries and, often, colourful autumn foliage.

Standard trees are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level: their trunk's waist measurement. Unlike sapling trees and hedge plants, standards aren't measured by their height, which will vary quite a bit both between and within species.
So, a 6/8cm standard tree has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8cm and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10cm around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
On average, standard trees are 2-3.5 metres tall when they arrive, but we cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.
