Very rare and new to us, Sorbus 'Nevezhinskaja' is a Russian selection of Rowan with a fairly upright, columnar habit and masses of edible, bright orange berries once established in autumn. The leaves are bright green in summer, with yellow, orange and red autumn colours before falling.

- 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.
