Tree Information



Wet Soil: Medium

Dry Soil: Medium

Lime: Medium

This selection of Sorbus aucuparia is a fairly narrow, upright form with ascending branches. This compact habit makes it a more formal choice than the species which is more open and variable. It does, though, share the orange-red colour of the fruits which appear in large clusters a bit earlier than the species July to November (or when the birds eat them!)

Like the native, this selection thrives on acid soils, though can tolerate any well-drained soil though it is not long-lived on shallow soils over chalk. The tidy, ovoid canopy form lends itself well to small-scale formal avenues, street planting, or small gardens.
