An unusual dwarf shrub, Amelanchier rotundifolia 'Helvetica' is much smaller than the other Amelanchier listed here with a compact, branching habit. It has masses of attractive white flowers in Spring once established and the dark green summer leaves turn pretty shades of orange, bronze and red before falling in autumn.

The small end size makes this Amelanchier a good choice for growing in gardens with limited space and it can also be kept in a large container (if well watered and potted up from time to time). Obviously as a dwarf selection, this is slow growing and not for instant gratification.
