“Autumn Brilliance” Apple serviceberry is a wonderful four-season tree with white flowers in the spring, blue-green leaves that turn red in the fall, blue-black edible berries, and smooth silver-gray bark. It is an excellent tree for a woodland garden, naturalized setting, or as a specimen plant in a garden.  This tree is a hybrid of two native species of serviceberry. Berries resemble blueberries in taste and may be used in jams, jellies and pies. Finely-toothed, oval-lanceolate leaves (to 3″ long) emerge with bronze tints in spring, mature to dark green from late spring throughout summer before finally turning brilliant red to orange-red in fall.The tree is hardy in zones 4-9.
