Product Details

This wonderful tree has magnificent downy silvery green foliage that is at its very best between May and July. If left to grow to its full unadulterated shape it can grow too dense and wide for a small garden but Sorbus aria Pleach is restrained with a 1.8 metre clear stem and a flat window frame of 1.2 metres wide by 1 metre high. This makes it ideal for pretty stilted screening above fence height within a small garden where privacy is required.

White flowers are produced in spring and they make way for clusters of red berries for the autumn. To maintain, simply prune back to the original framework every winter. Sorbus aria Lutescens pleach thrives on most free draining soils and is a tree we often exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show as it looks so nice that time of year. Its foliage looks stunning against a blue sky.

If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.

Mature height: 3-4m
