Sorbus aucuparia, commonly known as the rowan tree or mountain ash is a deciduous tree. Leaves are dark green in colour and turn yellow or red in the autumn, providing vibrant fall foliage. In late spring to early summer, rowan trees produce clusters of small, fragrant white flowers. These flowers are attractive to pollinators such as bees. One of the most distinctive features of the rowan tree is its bright red or orange berries, which ripen in late summer and persist into the winter. The berries are an important food source for birds. Commonly planted as ornamental trees in gardens and landscapes due to their attractive appearance and small to medium size.

Using bareroot specimens is a cost-effective alternative to pot grown plants and allows the plants to establish their root systems before the growing season starts.

This is a BARE ROOT plant which can be planted during dormant months, usually November until March. Dispatch date varies from year to year as plant can only be lifted when dormant. This plant has exposed roots and must be planted once received.
