An unusual Amelanchier with gorgeous clusters of white flowers in spring which is native to parts of Central and Southern Europe. This particular cultivar has superb 8 - 12 cm long panicles of eye-catching flowers in late spring.

The leaves are a silvery colour when young, darkening to cool green in spring and summer before turning shades of orange, red and yellow in a good, crisp autumn. Once established, after flowering it will produce small black fruit in mid to late summer which are popular with birds.

In our experience although lovely once established, Amelanchier ovalis 'Edelweiss' tends not to grow as strongly as the others listed on our website and can be slower to form a nice shape. Because of this is is generally better suited to keen and patient gardeners!
