Apple Serviceberry is a hybrid between A. arborea and A. laevis. The main ornamental feature is the flowers that are larger than those of other Amelanchier. The flowers are borne in early May and are at first tinged with pink but later fade to white. The young leaves are purplish and the fall color is yellow to orange.
Good for use as a background shrub or a specimen small tree. The thick, glossy foliage turns orange and red in fall.
