Growth Form

The Amelanchier laevis 'R.J. Hilton' is a variety of the common Amelanchier Laevis. It has a narrow and upright growth form.



This beautiful cultivar blooms in the months of April/May with large, pink flower buds. Subsequently, white flowers appear, creating a stunning blossom color in your garden during spring.



The newly emerged leaves are a striking deep red color. As they mature, the leaves transition to dark green, and in the autumn, they turn yellow, orange/red.


Winter Hardiness/Wind/Air Pollution

The Amelanchier laevis 'R.J. Hilton' is exceptionally winter-hardy and can tolerate strong winds and air pollution.



This species is highly suitable for (roof) gardens or planters. It thrives best in full sun, in a slightly acidic, well-drained, and moisture-retaining soil.


How to plant the tree?

  1. Determine the final location of the tree and ensure it is free from cables, debris, old plants, and other obstacles that may hinder the tree's growth.
  2. Dig a planting hole that is twice the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil at the bottom of the planting hole and mix the excavated soil with (organic) garden soil or planting substrate.
  3. Adjust the planting hole to the height where the root ball fits and firmly press the soil.
  4. Fill the planting hole with water and wait for it to settle. Check if the root ball is sufficiently moist.
  5. Place the tree or plant in the planting hole. It is extremely important that the tree is not planted too deep, as this can cause root rot.
  6. Insert a tree stake or bamboo stake firmly into the ground on the side of the tree where the most wind comes from.
  7. Now, place the watering ring or create a mound of soil around the tree so that water can seep into the ground.
