Kashmir Rowan (sorbus
Easily identified by its white autumn fruits this Rowan is slowly
becoming more popular. It grows as a relatively upright tree to an eventual height of 10m
(32ft). As well as the fruits, it has bunches of spring flowers which are a light pink.
Showy Mountain Ash / Rowan (sorbus
A highly under rated Rowan native to the USA and Canada. Growing to about 10m (32ft) it has
lots of white flowers in spring and red berries in autumn. The tree holds its shape well.
Madeira Rowan / Mountain Ash (sorbus
The Madeira Rowan is almost extinct in the wild which is a great pity because it is the very
best Rowan for a small garden. It forms a compact domed shrub shape. White flowers in
spring, lots of berries in autumn and the foliage is held on the tree well. Unfortunately we
found no online suppliers of this species of sorbus.
A rare species of Rowan. We have the pictures of it below but little other information.
You are unlikely to find sorbus matsumurana anywhere other than in an arboretum.
The tree in the picture below was viewed at Batsford Arboretum. The bark is attractively
mottled. the branches held high up the tree with a nice rounded appearance. There were
lots of red berries on the tree and few had fallen.
Small Leaf Rowan (sorbus-microphylla)
Another rarely found sorbus species. Sorbus-pohuashanensis is
an attractive small to medium sized tree which has lots of cream coloured flowers in
spring and masses of orange berries in autumn. The narrow, glossy leaves are more
attractive then most Rowan trees
An attractive and spreading tree, sorbus scalaris has narrow glossy green
leaves which are very attractive. They are toothed only towards the end of each leaflet.
The berries are orange and although small the sorbus scalaris produce a good number of
them. The bark is an unremarkable relatively smooth, grey-green colour.

Named after Charles Wilford who worked in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew in the mid
1800s. He recorded sorbus wilfordii whilst working in Korea, Japan and Taiwan.
