June Berry (also known as Snowy Mespilus) makes a gorgeous addition to a mixed hedge. Plant Juneberry amongst an assortment of native hedge plants. The bush blooms in March and April with star shaped white flowers. Its new leaves are coppery pink and silky, maturing into green, then taking on tones of rich red and orange as autumn progresses. It’s fruits are edible and taste like apples. They are dark red in the summer before changing to purple/black in Autumn.
Birds love Juneberry fruits. They work well for birds with heights up to 3m. Plant in sunny, moist soil and best of all sheltered or exposed, inland or coastal.
