Sorbus domestica f. pomifera

A Mountain ash relative native to the UK and Europe, it is one of our rarest trees, being only known from three cliff sites in S Wales, Cornwall and Bristol, growing as stunted shrubs and all discovered only recently. A medium sized very hardy deciduous tree, larger than a rowan at up to 15 to 20m tall, and with scaly bark, it is better suited to warmer and drier summers. Flat heads of comparatively very large white flowers in May followed by comparatively large rounded fruit, like small crab apples with rosy cheeks. Superb autumn colour in rich-yellow or orange-red.

Pot size: 2L
