The foliage of this tree retains some of the beauty of its parent, Sorbus aria, each leaf emerges with a dark green surface and light silvery-grey underside, turning to a brilliant orange in the autumn.
The creamy white flowers appear in clusters in the spring and are followed by abundant bunches of red berries in the autumn time that will remain on the tree well into the winter or until they are picked from the tree by the birds.
Sorbus thuringiaca Fastigiata forms a small tree at maturity which is columnar when young and becomes broadly oval with time.
It is a tough tree which can withstand some wind, cold and on the opposite end of the scale is tolerant of direct heat and air pollution and thrives on most soils, performing best on well drained soils.
This tree makes a fine street tree and is a super choice for urban environments and gardens alike. It is useful for restricted spaces and given optimum conditions and space this tree can reach over 10m in height.
Offering year round interest and extreme durability, this tree is a great choice when there is any doubt over the quality of soil or if the planting site has any harsh environmental qualities.
If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.
Mature height: 7-12m
