Product details

Sorbus aucuparia Sheerwater Seedling is a well-known Mountain Ash that has long been planted in urban environments and as a street tree.

It is a stalwart performer that won the RHS Award of garden Merit in 2002.

The foliage of this Mountain Ash is similar to the species, being a mid-green, compound and containing 4-9 pairs of leaflets. 

The flowers are creamy white and hang in clusters when they appear in the spring and are followed by bright red, bird friendly, berries in the autumn, as which point the green leaves of this reliable tree turn yellows and gold.

At maturity Sorbus aucuparia Sheerwater Seedling forms an oval tree; however as a young tree the branches are fairly stiffly ascending, giving it an upright look for a number of years. 

Over time this tight shape is interrupted by the heavy fruits, which gradually open the crown up.

This tree will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions and does not mind being planted in semi-shade.

This tree is useful where space is limited and will provide year round interest coupled with fodder for the local wildlife.

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

Mature Height: 7-12m
