Amelanchier lamarckii Hedging Plant Description
Juneberry hedging comes alive in spring, with its bronze and pink-tinged leaves and white flowers, before maturing into glossy green leaves that turn vibrant red and orange during the autumn months. Although it is not the fastest grower, with a growth rate of around 30-40cm per year, Juneberry hedging boasts year-round interest.
Juneberry is a fruiting hedge - in fact, its delicious berries, which are said to taste similar to apples, are commonly used in gin! In the summertime, you will be able to eat the ripened berries off the hedge, although they are also very popular with birds, who tend to pick them all off before they ripen.
Amelanchier lamarckii should ideally be planted in moist but well-drained soil, preferably in exposed areas or sheltered sites with full sun coverage. Available as either a pot-grown or bare root shrub, Juneberry hedging is a generally low-maintenance hedge that makes an effective privacy screen in your garden and although not a native hedge species itself, it works perfectly as a complementary planting addition to a mixed native hedge.
Please note that in accordance with DEFRA regulations, we are unable to dispatch this species to anywhere outside of the UK Mainland.
Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
Juneberry should be pruned in the dormant Winter months (November-February).
