Whitebeam Mountain Ash, Rowan
Sorbus thuringiaca Fastigiata

A most unusual hybrid between our British native Whitebeam and Mountain Ash, originally found in the wild. Of small size and upright habit it has attractive deep green and silver foliage, large heads of creamy white flowers in spring followed by heavy bunches of speckled scarlet fruits, excellent food for hungry birds.

Rootstock: colt (semi-dwarf)

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.
