Product Details

Sorbus commixta Embley, known as Chinese Scarlet Rowan, was introduced into the UK in the 1880s and originates from Japan and Korea.

It is looser in habit than our native rowan and its feathery green summer foliage turns to a magnificent scarlet in the autumn.

White flowers are produced in the spring which gives rise to clusters of orange berries by late summer.

A great tree for wildlife, this garden tree thrives best on free draining soils.

Sorbus commixta Embley has silver lenticels on its juvenile trunk and stems and its new season buds are red.

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

Mature Height: 3-7m
