GardenAward

Rowan

Unique form of this much loved tree with rose pink berries in autumn

An attractive compact medium-sized tree with fresh green-blue feather-like leaves that turn vivid shades of red and orange in the autumn. Small bunches of white flowers in late spring give way to clusters of pink berries, which gradually fade to white in winter.

Where?

This plant loves to grow in full sun. It is a good choice for low maintenance and urban gardens.

How?

For best results plant in humus-rich soil that is moderately fertile, moist and well-drained.

Sorbus Pink Pagoda comes from Western and Central China and is popular with birds and wildlife.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Position the stake in the hole, on the side of the prevailing wind and drive it into the soil, to a depth of 60cm. The stake should be a third of the height of the tree, when planted. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole close to the stake, with the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Use two tree ties to secure the stem to the stake. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year. Check ties regularly and adjust them as the tree grows.

Planting site Wildlife garden, Cottage garden, Informal garden, Banks and slopes
