Amelanchier laevis 'Snowflakes'

This was going to be a small tree with white flowers in April on copper foliage and turn bright red in autumn. I hoped it would be interesting enough to replace the magnificent Fremontedendron which flowered all summer but upset the neighbours with its itchy hairy leaves and seed pods so had to go. RIP. As it turned out I decided fairly quickly that it was simply too dull and it was removed after it had flowered. I think it took me longer to research and decide on it than it lasted in the ground.
