You may enjoy visiting Court 26 on the Medford Campus this week, as the Amelanchier в grandiflora ‘Autumn brilliance,’ also known as Serviceberry, comes into bloom. This beautiful allée of native trees was planted just last year, and they have settled in quite beautifully.
The white flowers of spring are in full bloom right now, and will be followed by edible, juicy blue-black fruit. The bird population enjoys the berries as the season progresses. In the autumn, the leaves turn to a wonderful combination of orange and red. Truly a tree for all seasons!
