Autumn Brilliance

Serviceberry 'Autumn Brilliance' - afternoon

The serviceberry ‘Autumn Brilliance’ is living up to its name today.

The other cultivars (I assume) I see around are more yellow to light orange; ‘Autumn Brilliance’ has a lot of red and purple in it.

Nothing says fall (or autumn) like a red tree against a blue sky!

  1. It’s really pretty. I love serviceberries. Ours is more orangey-gold. It was already here, and I don’t know if it’s a cultivar or native. It’s my favorite of the shrubs that were here before me. The leaves are coming down pretty fast now with today’s wind and rain.

    Yours is the only ‘Autumn Brilliance’ I’ve seen – looks like an excellent pick with that beautiful fall color.

      I will admit it was the only cultivar at the nursery I bought it at, so I don’t claim any foresight! The clear gold-orange leaves of the other cultivar/species I see around is quite striking, but AB looks good with the deep-red oakleaf hydrangeas.
