A very fine form of rowan, or 'mountain ash', ideal for smaller gardens and good for wildlife. Quite upright when young this tree will in time form a rounded crown. Masses of tiny white flowers in flattened corymbs will appeal to the bees, finely cut mid-green foliage which turns fiery red-orange in autumn, accompanying the brightly coloured orangey-red fruits, which will be much enjoyed by birds looking for food.
Sorbus aucuparia 'Aspleniifolia' is extremely hardy and tolerant of almost any garden soil, from acid through to chalky and pretty much anything in between. As the name 'mountain ash' suggests, this rowan is very tolerant of wind. H: 5-6m only.
