The Rowan, Asplenifolia has a canopy of feathery fern-like leaves setting it apart from other Sorbus. A tree giving both grace and strength with lovely clusters of white flowers can appear from April, in May to early June giving a glorious array. Surrounded by the soft-green feathery leaves that turn to glowing oranges and red in the autumn. The berries, loved by birds develop over the summer ripening to dazzling orangey-red in the late summer and autumn.
A beautiful deciduous tree with a upright oval shape and its open canopy of feathery leaves, Asplenifolia is a good choice for a smaller garden. It likes moist fertile well-drained soil and prefers sun but will grow in partial shade.
A favourite and life saver for many birds, especially Thrush, Blackbirds, and if you are in luck the occasional Waxwing. The blossom too is a good nectar for Bees and other little insects.

Of interest: The berries of the native Rowan and any of the cultivars are a favourite of many birds and the occasional visitor ‘the Waxwing’. A colourful crested bird and native of Scandinavia occasionally migrates to find food during harsh winters, we are glad to welcome them to Britain.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
