I recently purchased an Amelanchier lamarckii tree on line and have realised it has very tiny flowers now they have started to open . Is this typical ? In photos the flowers look quite big ! I imagine that it will still be an attractive tree when its grown to full maturity! I am at this stage a little disapointed .

They are lovely trees/shrubs, but you need to keep them in check if you have limited space.
The flowers will be followed by fruits loved by birds and in autumn the foliage turns beautiful shades of red/orange.
The flowers on mine look as if they'll be open in a few days.

Yes, they are like a plum flower and have edible fruit. Very nice trees, can't wait for mine to explode into bloom
