Sorbus aucuparia

European Mountain Ash, Rowan Tree

Decorative and tough, Mountain Ash's scattered flower clusters yield colorful hanging fruits. The red, yellow, orange, pink and white fruit is a treat for birds. In fall, their fernlike foliage turns orange to red. Best in northern climates, they tolerate wind, cold and dry weather. Do not like summer heat. Good specimen or shade trees, though fruit can cause litter. Some are difficult to transplant. Prone to various diseases, canker, fireblight and borers, especially on plants under stress. Stressed by alkaline soils, compacted soils and air pollution.
