MOUNTAIN ASH (Sorbus aucuparia) (Rowan)
Enlarge Picture Enlarge picture

Autumn fruit on Mountain Ash at Garden Centre.

Hardy native deciduous tree tolerant of most situations. White flower heads in June, large bunches of orange-red berries in autumn, which are irresistible to birds. The berries can be made into a delicious rowan jelly. Leaves typically have 15 leaflets, green in summer turning orange in autumn.
If you want to incorporate Mountain Ash into your hedge, not only as a tree to stand proud of the hedge, but also as part of the hedge, especially a native hedge. If you want it to be a tree, put a clear tag on the young plant to make sure it is clearly visible and does not get pruned down when the hedge is being trimmed. If you want it as part of the hedge it will enhance the beauty of the hedge and provide blossom in the spring for pollinating insects, then food for wild life in autumn. Simply plant the smallest size available in the hedge and trim in the same way as other plants in the hedge.
TREE 20ft x 10ft (6m x 3m) in 20 years, ultimate height 40ft (12m).

We can only sell bare-rooted plants when they are dormant. Orders for bare-rooted plants will be sent when the plants are dormant again (depending on the weather this is normally in November). We still have a wide range of pot grown and cell grown plants available for despatch or collection.

We don't charge your credit card for goods until they are about to be despatched. Orders received before October will be charged at this season's prices. We process orders on a first come, first served basis so to get your plants as early as possible please place your order now.
