European Mountain-ash

The Mountain-Ash, European, Sorbus aucuparia, is known for its showy white flowers and its numerous bright red berries. Its alternate name "Rowan" comes from an old Scandinavian word meaning red.

The bark of this tree is smooth and dark gray, and is marked with horizontal lines.

European Mountain-Ash is planted for its ornamental qualities and as a source of food for birds. The fruits mature in the late spring but often remain on a tree through fall and into early winter.

Best used as a specimen plant, it is upright when young and spreading at maturity. The Mountain-Ash is a vigorous and rapidly growing tree and can reach heights of 25' to 40' and widths of 16' to 25'.

Plant in a cool moist location and does better in full sun but will tolerate some shade. This tree prefers well-drained, slightly acidic soils.

The fall leaf color can range from yellow, red, and reddish purple which provides for a showy fall display!
