Sorbus (Whitebeam/Rowan/Wild Service)
We provide a range of Sorbus bare root plants, including Sorbus aucuparia & Sorbus torminalis.
Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) is perhaps the prettiest of our native trees. With delicate leaves, which create a light canopy, clusters of creamy flowers, scarlet-orange berries and good autumn leaf colour, it looks good through much of the year. Thoroughly hardy (it grows well in the far north of Scotland) and trouble-free to grow, it has excellent wildlife value and is equally attractive in urban gardens as it is in woodland.
The Wild Service Tree (Sorbus torminalis) is a native deciduous tree with upright sweeping branches and a rounded canopy, generally found in old woodlands and hedgerows but can sometimes be found within parks and large gardens.
