A popular ornamental tree, Sorbus cashmiriana is native to the western Himalayas, including Kashmir and has a superb display of white berries once established.
Panicles (branched cluster of flowers) of pale pink flowers appear in late spring and are followed by large clusters of waxy-white berries as early as September. These are particularly long lasting and in a good weather can stay on the tree well into winter!
