Amelanchier alnifolia ‘Smokey’ – Smaller liner or hedging size. A more economical way to start your own orchard or fruit collection. 30 cm (12 in) plants. Hardy down to zone 2a.
Plants are on their own root stock, thus you can leave any branches that come out from the roots. Prune the plants to desired shape in the spring, when plants are dormant. Space them a minimum of 60 cm (2 ft) apart. Do not cultivate to deeply around the plants as their root stock is very shallow. Keep well watered the first year to establish. The first years growth is minimal as they are a slow starter. (8065 Seedling plugs do not soak).
