Mountain ash, Rowan - 15 litres
Sorbus aucuparia the Rowan or Mountain ash, is one of the most ornamental of British native trees, with attractive ferny foliage sometimes colouring richly in autumn, cream-white flowers in spring and large clusters of bright red berries in late summer and autumn, from which a delicious jelly can be made. The flowers are popular with bees and the berries provide food for hungry birds.
Grows around 4-5m (13-17ft) high and wide in 10 years, up to 12m by 7m (40ft x 25ft) in maturity. Thrives in moist but well-drained neutral to acid soil, tolerating damp and harsh, exposed locations.
Bee and butterfly friendly.
