SORBUS AUCUPARIA - Mountain Ash / Rowan
Relatively hard difficulty – 4/5
Daily throughout the growing season, keep moist in winter
Gold and orange leaves and red fruit in autumn, white flowers in spring
Suitable for all styles except formal upright and broom
The Rowan’s defining feature is the profusion of bright red berries that adorn its branches in late summer and autumn, creating a striking contrast against the tree’s lush, pinnately compound leaves. This small to medium-sized deciduous tree also showcases clusters of delicate, fragrant white flowers in the spring, which attract pollinators and add to its aesthetic charm.
The smooth, greyish-brown bark provides a beautiful backdrop to its vibrant foliage and fruit. As the seasons progress, the leaves transform into a rich, green canopy, providing excellent shade and visual appeal.
