Amelanchier MEDIC. – June berry, serviceberry, snowy mespilus

 

The genus of Amelanchier includes about 25 species, nearly all of which are found in North America, only two species are native to Europe and Asia Minor and one is native to East Asia. They are deciduous shrubs or small trees with alternate leaves, often with colourful juvenile leaves and abundant flowers on white terminal racemes. 

Amelanchier have bright yellow to fiery red autumn colour. Amelanchier are exceptionally undemanding as to site conditions and climate and transplant easily. 

  

lamarckii

 



Habit

Large, multi-stemmed shrub, open, upright when young, becoming broader with a near umbrella-shapedcrown and slightly drooping side branches in maturity.

Size 4 to 6 (up to 8) m in height, when old often wider than high. After 40 years about 6 m high and 7 (8) m spread. Annual growth 20 to 25 cm in height, 15 to 25 cm spread.
Foliage

Deciduous, alternate, 3 to 8.5 cm long, elliptic, juvenile leaves copper-red, autumn colour bright yellow, orange to red.

Flowers White, solitary flowers, stellate, in upright racemes, abundant in April.
Fruits Blue-black, round berries, edible, formerly used as a substitute for currants.
Roots Main shallow, densely branching.
Site

Sun to light shade.

Soils

Normal, cultivated soils, acid to slightly alkaline, moderately dry to moist. Amelanchier is generally undemanding. 

Characteristics

Exceptionally tolerant of frosts, tolerant of winds, urban sites, temporary wet or dry conditions. Even large Amelanchier specimens transplant well.

Taxus L. – Yew 

  

Taxus baccata

  Habit

Small to medium-sized tree or shrub with an ovate to asymmetrical crown and short, often crooked stem. Branches are held horizontally to ascending, branchlets often hang. 

Size 10 to 15 m in high and 8 to 12 m in spread. Annual growth 25 cm in high, 20 cm spread.  
Bark Thin, red-brown, an old stems grey-brown, flaking in scales. 
Needles

Evergreen, needle-like, black-green, two-ranked, linear, tapering to a point, 1 to 3 cm long.

Flowers The plant is dioecious. Male strobili in yellow heads, female strobili are inconspicuous. March/April.
Fruits Red, fleshy aril enclosing the 6 to 7 mm long and 3.5 mm wide seeds.
Roots

Very deep-lying root system (Ehlers). Densely branched, dense fibrous roots.

Site Sun to partial shade.
Soils

Yew prefers moist, nutrient-rich, calcareous soils, but is generally tolerant of a range site conditions and thrives even on moderately dry, poor, midly acid soils, intolerant of strongly acid soil.

Characteristics Frost tolerant, on unfavorable sites it may suffer in extremely cold winters, lightly intolerant of late frost, has the lowest light requirements of  the native trees, prefers high humidity levels, good re-growth from old wood, withstands root competition from large trees, tolerates urban sites and wind, intolerant of sunny, dry sites in winter. Yewscan reach an age of more than 1000 years.
