Amelanchier ovalis c.s. (European Amelanchier, Snowy Mespilus) is a genus of deciduous trees and shrubs in the Rosaceae family. While there is no specific species referred to as "European Amelanchier," there are several Amelanchier species native to Europe. Some of the common European species include:
Amelanchier ovalis: This species, also known as the European serviceberry, is native to various parts of Europe, including central and southern regions. It typically grows as a large shrub or small tree, reaching heights of around 10 to 20 feet (3 to 6 meters). It produces clusters of white flowers in spring, followed by small, edible berries that ripen to a dark purple or black color.
Amelanchier lamarckii: While this species is not exclusively European, it is native to Europe and has become popular as an ornamental tree. It is commonly known as Juneberry or Snowy Mespilus. Amelanchier lamarckii typically grows to a height of 20 to 30 feet (6 to 9 meters) and features ovate leaves, showy white flowers, and small, edible berries.
Amelanchier alnifolia: Although native to North America, specifically the western regions, Amelanchier alnifolia is cultivated in Europe and other parts of the world. It is commonly known as Saskatoon serviceberry and is valued for its ornamental beauty and edible berries.
These are just a few examples of Amelanchier species that are either native to Europe or commonly found in European landscapes. Each species has its own unique characteristics and requirements. If you are specifically referring to an Amelanchier species known as "European Amelanchier," it might be helpful to provide more specific information or consult with local horticultural experts or native plant specialists who are familiar with the regional variations and species available in Europe.
