Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Robin Hill’ – Robin Hill Serviceberry

Botanical Name: Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Robin Hill’

The Robin Hill Serviceberry (Amelanchier x grandiflora ‘Robin Hill’) is a beautiful and very cold hardy, small, deciduous tree. It grows in a rounded, oval shape, and its form is upright and open. It can be grown as a standard tree or multi-trunked. This tree grows to a height of 20 to 30 feet and a width of 18 feet. It is a cross between two North American Serviceberry species –  Amelanchier canadensis (Shadblow or Canadian Serviceberry) and Amelanchier laevis (Allegheny Serviceberry).

This tree is versatile for use in many types of landscapes – both big and small. It makes a good addition to habitat gardens, as well as adding moderately fine texture to a mixed border. ‘Robin Hill’ also works as a screening tree near decks and fences, as well as a foundation plant or specimen tree.

Robin Hill Serviceberry provides interest throughout the seasons, from bright pink buds covering the tree in April to vibrant colors in the fall. In early spring, the flowers open as the bright new leaves emerge. The blooms fade from pale pink to pure white as they develop, hanging in clusters above the leaves and providing nectar for bees.

In late spring or early summer, the Robin Hill produces blue fruits, similar to blueberries. These berries provide food for birds but are not particularly attractive to deer. The oval-shaped leaves emerge in spring, and they mature to a deep, rich green as spring turns to summer. The fall color is a delightfully rich orange-red.
