Warming earth, blue sky, and blossoms, but not those of cherry trees. The white blossoms perfume our garden path and remind us of dusky roses. The University of Florida Environmental Horticulture fact sheet says, “The main ornamental feature is the spectacular white flowers that are larger than those of other amelanchiers. The flowers are borne in early spring and are at first tinged with pink but later fade to white.”
