Product details

Discovered by Ernest Wilson and introduced from its native western China in 1910, this lovely rowan stands out by its flat blue tinged leaves and light brown trunk.

It won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002 and forms a compact broadly oval crown at maturity. Splendid white berries start out pink before turning white, they are produced in large clusters with stunning red autumn colour.

These characteristisc typifies Sorbus hupehensis as a small, low maintenance tree which thrives on most soils and can tolerate the rigours of the urban environment.

Being white, the berries are the last to be taken by birds, so can remain on the tree way past Christmas.

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

Mature height: 3-7m
