One comment on Autumn Brilliance for those of us in the North:  I've had two bushes for 5 years and every year they die right back to the ground while none of my other bushes suffer any die back at all.  By others I mean: Smoky, Northline, Martin, Nelson, Thiesen, Pembina and Honeywood.  Favourites: Nelson and Honeywood test the highest in antioxidants while Martin and Thiesen seem to have the largest berries.

1. How large does 'Autumn Brilliance' get - some sources indicate 35 feet, but I suspect 20 to 25'.
2. What are the best-tasting tree Juneberry/Serviceberry cultivars?
(Robin Hill; Princess Diana; Autumn Brilliance; Ballerina; Cole's; etc.)
3. I couldn't find a source for 'Robin Hill' (not seed-propagated).  One source claimed it was the best-tasting of the apple-serviceberry varieties.
