Whitebeam Mountain Ash, Rowan
Sorbus Chinese Lace

A close relative of our British native tree with deeply cut lace-like drooping foliage that turns to vibrant red and purple in autumn. Large heads of creamy white flowers in spring are followed by heavy bunches of brilliant red berries.

Size after 10 years:
approximately 5m (16ft) tall by 4m (13ft) across

Mountain Ash need a sunny site to grow well. They will thrive in most soils but can be short-lived on thin chalky soils.
