Sorbus splendens is a rare small tree once established with leathery dark green, pinnate leaves with bold purple and orange autumn tints before falling. Heads of white flowers in late spring are followed by eye-catching large clusters of orange-red berries in autumn. 

A hardy tree but giving best display of berries and fruit if planted in a sunny position with some shelter from cold winds.

  • Important Please Read - Sorbus (Rowan / Mountain Ash) species and cultivars are not and cannot be affected by the Ash disease, Chalara fraxinea.  Despite the potentially confusing name, mountain ashes are actually in the rose family, Rosacaea, and are closely related to apples and pears etc. Fraxinus excelsior (Common ash), are in the olive family, Oleaceae and the wind born disease recently found in the UK is completely specific to this genus.
