Flower Friday – Amelanchier

amelanchier-817661_1920

Description~ There are many different varieties that change color through different times of the year. The flowers could be bronze when young and then red or orange in the summer. There are white clusters of flowers that happen in the spring and there are edible fruits, when cooked, that grow with these flowers!

Cultivation~ Grow the best in moist but well-drained, organic soil. They would prefer the sun or partial shade.

Thoughts~ It is super interesting that this flower has fruits that join it! I wonder what they taste like! I love that all of these flowers come in different shades of colors! It makes everything more interesting.
