The rowan, Sorbus aucuparia
, is an ideal tree for most gardens, small and compact.
The rowan tree is a vigorous, broadly conical deciduous tree, which bears clusters of orange-red berries during the autumn.
Our own wild rowan, sorbus aucuparia
, has many glamorous cousins in the Himalayas, and they provide species that are spot-on for the small garden.
PLANTING the berry-bearing tree mountain ash, or sorbus aucuparia
(main picture), not only provides you with a colourful feature, but it is a real bird-puller as nuthatches, thrushes, waxwings and finches love to feast on its berries.
The common sorbus aucuparia
is a welcome sight at this time of year, laden with bunches of bright red fruit.
Our native species, Sorbus aucuparia
, has scarlet berries, but there are rosy-pink fruits on Sorbus hupehensis, yellow on Sorbus `Joseph Rock', white on Sorbus cashmiriana, and many other shades worth investigating.
