Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry) vs Autumn Brilliance Saskatoon

Amelanchier alnifolia Thiessen

Amelanchier x grandiflora Autmun Brilliance

Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)
Autumn Brilliance Saskatoon

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. It is one of the most productive saskatoon varieties. Its fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is popular with U-Picks and home owners because of its taller tree-like shape and larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards as it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Prized for its brilliant orange-red fall color and disease resistance, this exceptionally bright tree is an excellent focal point for your garden. In the spring, clusters of fragrant white flowers give way to edible purplish black fruit that is heavenly in jams, jellies and pies. Use this Saskatoon in shrub borders or as a small tree.
