Sorbus aucuparia Sheerwater Seedling - Rowan tree 10/12cm girth

It produces clusters of white flowers in spring/early summer followed by red berries much loved by birds. The green leaves are pinnate and let light through so as not to shade out smaller gardens. The Leaves turn to yellows and oranges in autumn. Will grow in almost all soils but avoid wet/boggy ground. Reaches 8-12m tall. Winner of the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.
